The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken

So this book was all sorts of awesome!  From page one I was sucked into the mystery behind the whole Psi organization and rehabilitation camps.  The idea of kids either dying at the age of ten or mutating with abilities is crazy! 


I really loved Ruby as a MC, while she has the power inside of her to take a lot of people down yet she hesitates to accept it as a part of her, afraid that it will make her into a monster.  I'm pretty pleased with how Ruby grows over the timespan of the book.  She becomes stronger and more sure of herself But she still has a long way to go.  I seriously love the little group that Ruby, Chubs, Liam, and Zum make.  They are perfect for each other and I really grew attached to them as a whole, especially as we learn more about their pasts.  And can I just say that I am SO Team Liam!  He is just the nicest guy and the most perfect fit for Ruby!


The whole book was one twist after another after exciting event after gut wrenching suspense.  But the end!  Ugh the end!  It has me left dying to know what is going to happen, I seriously can't take it!  I really thank the author for leaving me a tiny sliver of hope though!


The Darkest Minds is an excellent dystopian set in a realistic future world. It was a thrill ride that I didn't dare step off of until the end.  I highly recommend!
