Bramanda Watson | 4 comments The main character ends up using her (hidden possibly forbidden) magical abilities to save someone's life while at the camp. I'm thinking they were building something? And there was a boulder involved (?) I think I read it about 3 years ago, but I doubt it was new at the time. I think it might have been written in third person. I know there's not a lot to go on, but I'll post more in the comments if I remember more!

Tris Crescent | 87 comments “Snow Like Ashes” by Sara Raasch? It’s YA, fantasy, and came out in 2014. I’m pretty sure there’s a scene involving a prison-camp, boulders, and forbidden magic. (It has been a while since I read it, though). {can’t link- on mobile}

Aspiring Scribbler | 67 comments Sounds a bit like Obernewtyn by Isobelle Carmody. Not a camp exactly, but Elspeth was taken away for examination of her forbidden abilities. The series starts off feeling like fantasy, but the later books move pretty firmly into dystopia.

Linda | 12 comments Maybe Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi? She‘s locked up in a prison but she doesn’t save anyone while she’s in there. Only after she’s gotten out.
