The third and final book in Lauren Oliver’s remarkable New York Times bestselling trilogy about forbidden love, revolution, and the power to choose.
Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has transformed. The nascent rebellion has ignited into an all-out revolution, and Lena is at the center of the fight. After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven. Pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels.
As Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain of the Wilds, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. They live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.

Songs of Resistance By Lauren Oliver
The conclusion to the Delirium trilogy, Requiem, focuses a lot on Lena’s role in the resistance. It got me thinking about some of my all-time favorite bring-the-fight songs. Here’s a playlist to get you pumped for your own particular resistance!
1. “Fortunate Son” by Creedence Clearwater Reviva: This song, in particular its chorus, transforms anger over the Vietnam War into a defiant battle cry. When John Fogerty wails out “It ain’t me,” you can feel the pain of a generation of people forced into fighting a war they didn’t believe in.
2. “Rise Above” by Black Flag: Weirdly, this punk song is surprisingly positive! A positive punk song! “We are born with a chance/Rise above/We’re gonna rise above.”
3. “Rebel Girl” by Bikini Kill: The best thing about this song is that the rebel girl isn’t the outcast or the weirdo, she’s the “queen of the neighborhood”! Isn’t that how it should be?
4. “For What It’s Worth” by Buffalo Springfield: More than anything, this song is a call to reflection, attention, and thought. The nature of the conflict is intentionally vague (which makes it timeless).
5. “Doin’ Time for Bein’ Young” by James Intveld: From the Cry-Baby soundtrack (a great movie about teen rebellion). I think most teenagers feel like they’re being punished for being themselves at some point or another. This song takes that feeling and puts it into a very literal context!
6. “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” by Gil Scott-Heron: In short . . . keep your eyes open because real rebellion has to happen organically.
7. “Search and Destroy” by Iggy and the Stooges: I don’t really know what this song is about, but it is angry and it is beautiful.
8. “Redemption Song” by Bob Marley and the Wailers: “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery/None but ourselves can free our minds.” Nuff said!
9. “Not Ready to Make Nice” by Dixie Chicks: I’m not going to lie—I love the Dixie Chicks! I especially like that they are unapologetic in their opinions and are always willing to take a stand.
10. “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyoncé: Queen B!! Again, nuff said.
11. “99 Luftballons” by Nena: Did you know this song is actually a short piece of dystopian fiction? Much like the Delirium trilogy, it’s a story about what can happen when a government decides that something joyful and human is a dangerous threat. In this case, floating balloons are mistaken for enemy weapons.
12. “The Promised Land” by Bruce Springsteen: The Boss says it all when he says “I feel so weak, I just want to explode.”
13. “Fight the Power” by Public Enemy: It’s all in the title. :)
14. “Elsewhere” by Sarah McLachlan: Sometimes fighting for the small things that are meaningful to you as an individual can be as important as the big social battles. Even though the singer knows that “this is heaven to no one else but me,” she is still willing to “defend it as long as I can breathe.”
15. “You Get What You Give” by the New Radicals: This might be the most optimistic and downright cheery song about trying to change the status quo. It joyfully asks people to give back to the world a little . . . and to maybe make a little mayhem along the way.
16. “Tombstone Blues” by Bob Dylan: Leave it to Dylan to write an epic of societal discontent!From the Back Cover:
