I wanted to protect him — at that moment, it was suddenly clear to me exactly what I wanted: to protect them all of them. They had saved me. They had saved my life and hadn’t expected a single thing in return.

The Darkest Minds: 8 quotes

I think maybe the most frustrating feeling in the world is to have something to say buy not know how to ut it into words. To have lived through something but not be able to get it out of you before it festers.

15 Oct Happy birthday, NEVER FADE! I’m so excited US/Canada residents are finally able to start reading today! I don’t have release information on foreign editions, but each publisher might have the dates up on their website.
It should be in a good number of B&Ns and Walmarts, but you might want to call ahead and make sure they’ve stocked it. If you have an ereader, you can obviously download it instantly. :) 
More good news: THE DARKEST MINDS is still 99 cents to download on your Kindle, iPad, and Nook.
Let me know what you think of NEVER FADE, but please be sure to mark your spoilers!  
Thank you all SO much again for your excitement and patience over the past few months!!  I wish I had some words of wisdom to say on this occasion, but, really, I just hope you guys enjoy it!
