The darkest minds The darkest minds by Alexandra Bracken is the first book in ”The Darkest Minds” series. An absolutely spectacular dystopian novel that has the ability to captivate the reader on so many levels.

Ruby had lived 10 years of normal and safe life even though she has witnessed few of her classmate die due to mysterious disease. She never bothered about anything until she woke up on her 10th birthday and her parents reported her to police and along with a group of teenagers branded ‘dangerous’  she was sent to a  brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” These children might have survived the disease but they have emerged with something dangerous- supernatural abilities. After 6 years of torture and fearful life she escapes and joins the other kids to find a place where people like her are living safely. On the way to this place she falls for Liam a brave kid  with good heart but she can’t get near to him, not after what happened to her parents that night. Her powers are her curse but soon she realizes that she is more powerful than she gave herself credit for. People will try to use her powers in every way possible against government if they find out.

I really enjoyed reading this novel, my rating: 3 out of 5. I didn’t like the ending it was kind of predictable. But I am eager to read the remaining books in the series.
