The Darkest Minds is about a girl named Ruby. It is set when America is in a worldwide pandemic that is killing off children... but also giving rise to something more astonishing. Some children are showing signs of strange abilities. Ruby is one of them. These children are sent to concentration camps so that the government can catalog, experiment on, and treat them with the utmost indecency. Ruby and another boy are "rescued" by a group of people called the Children's League. Ruby then escapes and runs into a group of other escaped children who are on their way to the East River where they will be free, though the journey will not be easy.
I would most likely recommend this book to people who are fans of the Maximum Ride or Daniel X books. If you like a good old "children vs. the government" story," this is your book. It's also full of romance and teen drama. I personally thought it was a good book, especially when Ruby is learning to control her powers. I give this 4.5 stars, because even though it's a good book it didn't captivate me. But I hope you enjoy this book.
