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 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? @goodreads
This book surely ended on a cliffhanger!
But it was more of an in your face cliffhanger =)
Ruby has joined the Children's League and the others in the first book are out on their own. I should have re-read that one first but it's all good.
Some of the older characters do make their way back into this book. Along with some new ones that Ruby has met in the League. Vida, Jude, Nico and I liked Cate who was sort of their supervisor. I wasn't sure about Alban at first but it seems he was working for the greater good. Unless of course they pulled the wool over my eyes.
Ruby goes out on OPS with different groups to try and help some other kids that have talents like she does. The kids in the book have different colored labels. Ruby is an orange and she's one of the most dangerous with red being the top one. There's this whole description about it you can read about in the first book!
Ruby can change your memories or just read your mind. Or she can kill your brain so to speak. But she's a good girl and doesn't do harm to those that aren't dangerous.
In the first book Ruby had a thing going with Liam but he is out of the picture for now because of reasons. But his brother Cole is brought into the League and then all kinds of things start happening.
Runaways, finding kids that were thought dead that are still alive, search and rescue kids, try not to die while being shot at or bombed. And then we always run into jerk kids that want to run things and be over other sweet kids and gah!!!!!!!
Oh there is a jerk kid in the League named Rob, I loathed him. You can't trust everyone.
Then toward the end a sweet person dies............................NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
At the end there is a big ole revelation that I wonder if it will come to pass in the next book. I want it for the kids but . . . . lets just say I like them the way they are to a certain extent.
