When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America’s children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. She is on the run, desperate to find the only safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who have 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 having a life worth living.

I've only gotten through the first like 50 pages. But it's kinda interesting and kinda not at the same time. Hoping it picks up. But my sister loved this book and some other friends. So fingers crossed.

I didn't really feel "invested" in the story until about a third of the way through it. After that, I couldn't put it down. So stick with it. It's worth it. =)

I’m reading this too now and it’s the same way I felt. It took me until around page 120-130 to feel invested and now I’m reading a lot faster. Before that I went so slow because I just wasn’t feeling like I wanted to pick it up and read. I’m glad it’s picked up now.
