My Thoughts:


This book is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo amazing. If you haven’t read it go now. Seriously like go. This book is so close to taking over the favourite spot in my books. But Throne of Glass is still hanging strong. I haven’t read the rest of this series but really want to. I just need to get my hands on them

This book was so cool, i had it done in two days it was that good. And i had school and study to do, but this book trumped them all.

I loved it, how kids had all these cool powers


some are super smart and able to control others with their minds. Others can control electricity or start fires. Maybe controlling objects and being able to move things around without touching them is for you. Or are you really good with technology?

I loved this book so much.

Basically this girl named Rose has a power like the rest of the children her age. and because of that she is in a camp which makes these kids work and treats them really badly. She claims she is really good at maths but is that really her power?

One day when the White noise sounds the affects are a little more than usual, and by little i mean her ears bleed. So she is taken to the hospital and then a lot of stuff goes down and eventually she is on the road out of the camp. But the person who takes her out… can they be trusted?

can anyone be trusted?

She finds a group of three other children, who are trying to make it to the “safe ground”, a camp were all the children like them are let to just be themselves and no longer live in fear. The only problem is they don’t know how to get there, or where there is.

Can Rose crack the code?

what will happen when they make it there? If they Make it there?

THE ENDING IS SOMETHING TO LOOK OUT FOR. i cried and cried and cried and complained then cried some more



But this book was so good. I want to reread it and of course read the rest of the books in the series, but the library doesn’t have them and i am on book buying ban. why???????

Goodreads description:

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. She is on the run, desperate to find the only safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who have escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents. When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at having a life worth living.’ to
