Book Three finds Lena actively participating in the Resistance and Hana about to marry the young mayor. Neither is very happy, and both are unsure how that will ever change.
I absolutely love the way Lauren Oliver’s mind works. She was able to wrap up parts of the story that I’d forgotten about and end it in a way that left me satisfied even if I was a little disappointed.
Quote…how do you choose just one?… She is a total wordsmith! Think my favorites were: “And you can’t love, not fully, unless you are loved in return.” and “But maybe happiness isn’t in the choosing. Maybe it’s in the fiction, in the pretending: that wherever we have ended up is where we intended to be all along.”
