The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken is a novel that takes place in a futuristic world after disaster has struck. A new fatal disease has hit most kids under the age of 16, killing more than half of the population of kids. The survivors are sent to camps because they have developed powers that the government has edemed dangerous. After months of being held in the tortuous camp the main character finally manages to get out with another kid and the camp nurse, but are her intentions for the escaped camp members good ones?
I loved this book. I would recommend this book to fans of the Hunger Games and Divergent. It’s full of action and many twists and turns. The ending will leave teens wanting so much more.
