Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm picking:
(The Darkest Minds #2) by
October 15th 2013
Ruby never asked for
the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them
on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt
government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the
Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is:
When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she
must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s
League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of
America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared
and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the
truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam
Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t
As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless
country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped
both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the
promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect
the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?
Why I'm Waiting:
I really enjoyed the first book, a bit to my surprise and I'm looking forward to how this one turns out. The first book had some characters that I look forward to seeing again, particularly Liam.
