Book Review: The Darkest Minds

Book Review: The Darkest Minds

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Book Summary: When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse:  frightening abilities they could not control.
  Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.
  When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. She is on the run, desperate to find the only safe haven left for kids like her-East River. She joins a group of kids who have 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 giving her only chance at having a life worth living.
Syi's Summary: Ruby got sent to Thurmond after her parents called the police on her tenth birthday. She spent her horrible days at Thurmond for many years and now she is sixteen. She is on the run to escape Thurmond and find a safe place to be in. Ruby soon joins a group with the leader Liam who all escaped their camp. Together they are finding a way to escaped Thurmond without losing each other and their own lives.

Book Rate: 10!

This book is freaky awesome. I've been waiting to read this book forever. Then I saw it in my library and took it before anyone else gets it. So like if anybody checks it out now I'll be the first reader of this book.

Ok So, I really feel bad for Ruby being sent to Thurmond and her parents giving her away just like that. They could just tried to solve it or bring her to the doctor make her eat some medicine that would make her better. Not called the police right away.

At first I hate really Liam because of his attitude but later on I kind of like him.

So overall I really like this book. The title and the cover was really interesting, that's when I want to read the book because of that.

This is one of the cover beside the one at the top.

My book review banner for this book.

~Happy Reading~
