    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.

    Well written and wrenching

    Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader", but she knows what she really is: a monster. When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind.

    Great Story, Great Narrator, Annoying character...

    Ok it was a good book, exciting, action packed all the way through but Ruby has gotten on my last nerve. She is almost as dumb as Bella Swan in Twilig..Show More »

    Ruby can’t look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government’s attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there's no guarantee you're fully in control, and everything comes with a price

    Potential somewhat undone by angst overload

    I've loved this series, but for me the end was an exercise in frustration. Just a bit too much teenage angst and not quite enough story for this to be..Show More »
