Oliver’s "Delirium" trilogy centers on a futuristic society where the government “cures” people when they turn 18 so they don’t fall in love. In the series, two teenagers, Lena and Alex, find themselves unexpectedly defying society’s rules. The third and final novel in the series, “Requiem,” is due to be released in 2013.
Oliver's adult book is titled “Rooms,” according to the publisher Ecco, which is an imprint of HarperCollins.
“[It was] as instantly gripping as it was elegantly written,” the book’s editor, Lee Boudreaux, told the New York Times of reading “Rooms” for the first time.
