Staff Reviews

"It has been a long time since I have felt so empowered while reading a book. My journey reading this mirrors Ruby's, as she navigates a volatile and oppressive society. Alexandra Bracken's writing is so powerful and captivating. What's even more special about this story is not just the incredible and dark world, but the side characters, Ruby's accomplices that make this book shine. I have read this book 3 times since 2014! A must-read before the movie releases this summer!" -Kaitlyn

“A disease, Ideopathic Adolescent Acute Neurodegeneration or IAAN, is killing children. Any child who survives ends up with special mental powers of varying types and strengths. Frightened by their new abilities, the government establishes camps for the rehabilitation of these children. Instead, as our heroine Ruby finds, they are nothing more than brutal prisons, filled with mind-numbing activities and armed guards who readily kill anyone they deem a threat. Despite the rather bleak scenario, this is, at its heart, both a coming-of-age tale and a love story as Ruby comes to terms with her abilities and the new world in which she must survive.”
