Book Review #3-The Darkest Minds

By: Alexandra Bracken

Hiya, everybody! Right now I am currently reading Never Fade, by Alexandra Bracken, The Host, by Stephenie Meyer, and Every Day, by David Levithan!

Summary (from the book cover):
When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living. 

My opinion: 
This book was interesting in a weird way. Obviously this book will (hopefully) never become a reality, but you never know. Haha, I'm just kidding. ;) 
"Don't be scared. Don't let them see." 
This is from Ruby's old friend, Sam, that kept her going throughout the book.  I love how the world has kind of become what I would picture as a run-down apocalyptic planet.. Ruby's character is like a lot of other characters in other books. She doesn't want to get people around her hurt, and she thinks it would be best to not get close to anybody. Warning! The ending is a little sad.. :(
I would recommend this to people who like science fiction related books.

Comment if you're going to read this book! You won't regret it! :)

Keep Reading!
