About the Book
Sixteen-year-old Ruby breaks out of a government-run Orehabilitation campO for teens who acquired dangerous powers after surviving a virus that wiped out most American children.
From the Publisher
When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had
changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in
the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to
Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have
survived the mysterious disease that''s killed most of America''s
children, but she and the others have emerged with something far
worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.
Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.
When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her
life. Now she''s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven
left for kids like her-East River. She joins a group of kids who
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 a life worth living.
