    When Ruby woke up on her 10th 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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I cannot say because anything I say would include spoilers. A friend would trust and know my taste and would read it just based on my answer Yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The writing was wonderful. A bit of the dialog was annoying but in general, I found the plot very interesting, the characters enjoyable and well developed and most of the dialog really engaging.


    What about Amy McFadden’s performance did you like?

    I did not notice it - her voice(s) and the story blended together. That is the perfect experience for me. When I am constantly thinking about the reader - they are doing it wrong.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made my daughter cry. A lot. And then she punched me really hard And then she hugged me and cried some more. We both thought it was a wonderful story. But very sad.


    Any additional comments?

    if you like the pseudo-dystopian genre you probably really enjoy this book. I am quite looking forward to the next book.
