A Librarian Reads…

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Ruby was nine the first time she saw someone die. By her tenth birthday, most of the kids in her school were dead. Like most of the ones left, Lucy was taken off by soldiers with no warning. When she arrived at the camp, she quickly realized that being a yellow (kids who could control minds) was bad, so when it was her turn to be sorted she “suggested” to the doctor that she was a green. For the next six years she lived this lie, until one day she gets a chance to escape. But the world outside camp doesn’t seem much friendlier. She joins up with some other escaped kids, trying to find their families, some answers, and maybe a little hope.

Recommended for readers in grades 7 and up who enjoy stories about superpowers and corrupt governments.
