Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers like me get to gush about what makes their hands all grabby.
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.
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.
You guys! I cannot tell you how excited I am for this book! I've heard nothing but awesome praise for this book, and guess what? This pretty comes out on the 18th! That's not so far away from now! I mean, what is a 'dangerous one'? What can this Ruby girl do? It sounds like just the kind of book I'd like. However understated the cover is, it's not what its physical presence has to offer; it's what's on the inside that does. Well . . . as long as I keep telling myself that.
Sorry for being such a terrible blogger lately! I promise that in the next few days or so, there will be more frequent posts. For now, enjoy this gif.
And for those of you that don't know, Killian Jones/Captain Hook (aka, his real name is Colin O'Donoghue) is my love.
