Lena and Alex found their way back to one another.
After how the last book ended they really expect me to wait a year to find out what happens! I think I might die:(3/5/13 Ok. Wait WTF?! That wasn't the end was it? That was probably the stupidest ending of a book ever!

Lauren Oliver, a bestselling young adult writer whose latest book, Vanishing Girls, was published in the US last week, did not set out to write for teenagers – not originally.
