Annabel (Delirium #0.5) by Lauren Oliver

Lena's mother, Annabel, has always been a mystery—a ghost in Lena's past. Until now.Lena Halloway's mother, Annabel, supposedly committed suicide when Lena was only six years old. That's the lie that Lena grew up believing, but the truth is very different. As a rebellious teenager, Annabel ran away from home and straight into the man she knew she was destined to marry. The world was different then—the regulations not as stringent, the cure only a decade old. Fast forward to the present, and Annabel is consigned to a dirty prison cell, where she nurtures her hope of escape and scratches one word over and over into the walls: Love.

But Annabel, like Lena, is a fighter. Through chapters that alternate between her past and present, Annabel reveals the story behind her failed cures, her marriage, the births of her children, her imprisonment, and, ultimately, her daring escape.

My Word: Got that book off my chest :)
Wow, two book reviews in one day! #IHaveNoLife :)
Seeing as in Delirium, Hana, and Pandemonium, the books I read before Annabel, (Although Annabel should've been read before all those books...yeah...I realized that a little too late) that ALL had their own special twist in the end (especially Hana), I guess I had too high hopes for this to have some awesome twist to it. The ending was pretty good, leaving a cliffhanger for those who haven't read Pandemonium before reading this, if you know what I mean *hinthint*.

Since Annabel was a novella, short and sweet, I decided I'll leave my review to be short and sweet as well ;).

"I love you. Remember.
And someday I will find you again."
