Summary

Summary

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: a monster.

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 saved in only one place: a flash drive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future--and who now wouldn't recognize her.

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?

School Library Journal Review

Gr. 9 Up-Haunted by two murders she witnessed, Ruby has nevertheless embraced most of the combat training she received from the Children's League, and is now an Ops leader. She is also called upon to use her ability to probe memory to gather information for the League. Though she is willing to help with these sometimes distasteful interrogations, Ruby's ultimate goal is to shut down the brutal camps that house the small percentage of psi children who survived IAAN, the "disease" that hits American kids at adolescence. Background from book one is necessary for full enjoyment of the story, although it's possible to jump straight in. Chubs, Liam, Clancy, Cate, and Rob reappear from the first book, and Vida (angry and profane) and Jude (innocent and optimistic) join in the hunt for a missing flash drive that may contain answers about IAAN. Amy McFadden uses a wide variety of accents. Her tone, especially when Vida is speaking, conveys an anger that makes this a darker story than the first in the series. An obvious choice where the first book was popular.-Maggie Knapp, Trinity Valley School, Fort Worth, TX (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
