Book of the Week - The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Very different from Brightly Woven this is set in a brutal dystopian future when a disease decimates the population of pubescent kids. The few who survive have psi (paranormal) powers. Ruby discovers her horrible power when she realized that when she went into their room on the morning of her 10th birthday and bestowed kisses on her parent, she erased her entire presence in their memories. Taken away to one of the camps to house the children who did not die of the disease, her life is grim until she is taken away and finds other kids who have escaped. Lots of action and adventure in the second half of the book turns it into a real page turner that makes the reader anxious to read the next book in the series
