Annabel by Lauren OliverLena's mother, Annabel, has always been a mystery - a ghost in Lena's past. Until now.
Discover her secrets in Lauren Oliver's brilliant original digital story set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Delirium and Pandemonium. (Goodreads)
Really enjoy Lauren Oliver's books, so was excited to find this short story about Lena's mother, Annabel! It's a quick read at only 55 pages, but well worth it!
Alternating between past and present, we learn how Lena's parents first met and how Annabel escaped prison. We get to learn a little more about Annabel as a person, who has always been a bit rebellious. For instance, I never knew (or don't remember) that she had run away as a teenager. While I would have loved the story to be longer, I appreciated all the tidbits!
The author is incredibly talented and proves that she's able to handle short stories as well as full-length novels. Highly recommend this one for anyone who is reading the Delirium series!
