Waiting on Wednesday: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
By: Alexandra Bracken
Published by: Hyperion Teens
To Be Released on: December 18th, 2012
At the age of 10, something happen to children; something the government doesn't like. Either, they contract a terrible disease, or they gain powers beyond their control. They're being shipped to camps that will help cure them of their magical abilities. The camps are brutal.
The children are separated by colors in terms of their abilities. Ruby's lived for years as a green. However, a new test appears, ready to prove the correct color identity. Ruby's told in the nick of time. Someone helps her escape; someone who wants to use Ruby as a weapon.
Ruby doesn't understand much about the outside world, being locked away for six years. She comes across a group of teens, two boys and a girl. Not knowing what else to do, she stays with them. There are people looking for her. Can she stay under the radar? Can she make a new life for herself?
I first fell in love with Alexandra's writing with her debut, Brightly Woven (you can read Sophie's 5 star review here), and I can hardly wait to pick up her sophomore book, Darkest Minds. I'm intrigued by this book's synopsis. I can't wait to meet Ruby and discover her world. What book are you waiting on?
