The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds #1)  by Alexandra Bracken

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken is about a girl named Ruby who wakes up on her tenth birthday with powers she can’t control. She is sent to an interment camp and lives there for the next 6 years until she is broken out. But she doesn’t know why or by who, and when she learns who, she is just as afraid as when she was in the camp. She runs away and finds Liam, Chubs, and Zu, others who have escaped internment camps and are on the run for a supposedly safe place called ‘East River’. But Ruby has a secret, she is one of the ones with dangerous powers which makes her highest on the wanted list. I liked the story and the issues the main characters faced, as well as appreciated the depressing world they lived in (it was very nicely built), although I didn’t like the romance between the two main characters. It seemed too set up, but in the end the plot twist made it work. I would recommend this book to anyone who liked Red Queen, because it builds the same type of bleak dystopian world.
