The Darkest Minds
by Alexandra Bracken 

Goodreads synopsis:
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.
I heard about this on Sue Moro's YouTube channel, from her latest book haul. She won it from a Goodreads giveaway, and when she showed it in the video, she told us a little about the book - I was immediately intrigued by it. I love the idea of having powers, being able to do things that most other people can't, so obviously this book was going on my wishlist. It sounds like a really gripping read, and as soon as I get some more books off the TBR mountain, I will be getting myself a copy! I can't wait.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I've seen quite a few people mention this book on their blogs and youtube channels. It sounds really good and I'm interested in how they came to have the powers and why is there a disease killing off only children. Hmmm this is definitely going on my wishlist now :)
