She's never been one to back down from a challenge...

I glance over at Connor walking next to me. His face is set in hard lines, and I can tell he's upset. Even though the rest of us are safe, I know it kills him that one of us must suffer to remain that way. 

I reach out to squeeze his hand in reassurance, something I would never have done two months ago, and he glances over at me. "Tomorrow, we need to talk," he mouths, his stormy eyes dark and brooding. All I can think is, what have I done now?


Reagan Rykehart never expected to be sentenced to the Grandy Island reintegration camp for at-risk youth. She also never expected she’d be nuts enough to jump ship and make a run--er--swim for it.

Just her luck she washes up on psycho island. What’s that old saying? Takes one psycho to know another? When Connor and the Sect decide she’s trustworthy enough to bring her into the fold, she has no idea what she’s in for. 

Nevertheless, Reagan’s never been one to back down from a challenge and she isn’t about to start now. Problem is, will it be more than she can handle this time?

This is book 2 in a dystopian trilogy with darker themes, and elements of romance. An island adventure, packed full of twists and turns, you won't want to put it down. Cliffhanger endings, please read the books in order!

About the author

 C.B. Stone is sometimes called author, writer, or purveyor of stories. One might even dub her a yarn spinner if you will. It's very possible she might be considered just a little left of normal by most, but she's cool with that. Really, she's too busy avoiding normal to care. On any given day, you might find Stone pounding away at a keyboard in sunny FL, contemplating waves, contemplating life and dreaming up more exciting stories to share with readers. 


Except Sunday's of course. Sunday's are God's day, so you'll often find her making her best "joyful noise" with her local church praise team. When not pounding poor fingers to bloody nuggets and reinventing the definition of eye strain, C.B. Stone enjoys living it up, doing the family thing, the kid thing, and the friend thing. And in her downtime, reading the minds of fans.

Also being invisible. Being invisible is fun.

Book one in the hit series that's soon to be a major motion picture starring Amandla Stenberg and Mandy Moore--now with a stunning new look and an exclusive bonus short story featuring Liam and his brother, Cole. When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control. Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. But when the truth about Ruby's abilities--the truth she's hidden from everyone, even the camp authorities--comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. On the run, she joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp: Zu, a young girl haunted by her past; Chubs, a standoffish brainiac; and Liam, their fearless leader, who is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents. While they journey to find the one safe haven left for kids like them--East River--they must evade their determined pursuers, including an organization that will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. But as they get closer to grasping the things they've dreamed of, Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.
