The Darkest Minds has everything you want in a dystopian book and more: psychic powers, anti-government organizations, rehabilitation camps and constant struggles for survival. Ruby is days away from turning 10, and in her society when you turn 10 you contract a disease that either kills you or gives you strange psychic abilities. As a result, Ruby has seen classmates die or be taken away before her very eyes. On the morning of her 10th birthday, Ruby finds herself a survivor. Expecting her special breakfast of pancakes, Ruby is met instead by a mother and father who no longer know her.
