The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Posted by Jennifer Hiltner on 1/18/2018

Ruby is just like any other girl about to turn ten, except that when she wakes up to birthday her parents have no idea who she is.  This gets Ruby sent to Thurmond, one of the most dangerous "rehabilitation camps" for survivors of the strange virus killing millions of children ages 10 and up.  Flash forward to age 16, Ruby is one of the more dangerous children at Thurmond - but no one (including her) knows it.  When she gets broken out of camp, Ruby struggles to figure out (as you will too) who the "good guys" are.  Great dystopian novel that will keep you guessing with its twists and turns.  Part of a triology series - so I will be looking forward to book two.
