Hyperion presents Alexandra Bracken, author of the new YA novel The Darkest Minds!

This event is over. Sorry you missed it.

Meet Alexandra Bracken, author of The Darkest Minds, a heart-pounding first book in a young adult series. “A new twist on dystopia, this is one not to miss.” (RT Book Reviews) In The Darkest Minds, Ruby may have survived the mysterious diseases that killed most of America’s children, but something alarming about her changed: she and the other surviving children now have frightening abilities they cannot control. Ruby is sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp,” where she knows that she is one of the most dangerous ones. And when that truth comes out, she barely escapes Thurmond with her life. On the run and desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her, Ruby joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. But when they arrive at the safe haven, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. And soon Ruby is faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.
