My mother, Deneale won this book “Ruby’s Fire” from Ms. Stine in a facebook party for me. I am lucky enough to have received a signed copy of this and another book as well, and they are my very first autographed books that I own! And to that, I owe a big thank you to Ms. Stine and my mom.
So here is my first review, I just hope that I don’t let anyone down:
This book, “Ruby’s Fire” is set in the year 2099. Ruby is dependent on Oblivian Powder, (which is a drug) and she is seventeen years old, and has a little brother named Thorn and he is mute.
The Greening which is a boarding School for orphan teens, is where Ruby hopes she can stay and finally stop running. Unfortunately, this boarding school is not what it is cracked up to be.
Ruby starts experiencing her physical changes, all in the midst of students who are typical out of control teens. This doesn’t help her feel any more comfortable, going through her own changes, and dealing with troubled teens.
Blane is a resident body guard and Ruby is attracted to him, but also ashamed of her new found attraction. She doesn’t understand why she can’t be satisfied with Armonk. She doesn’t understand why her needs must be so difficult.
Ruby wants to stop her dependence on Oblivion, all while working on her inner beauty. She feels that she needs to get her life straightened out, and become stronger, and better. But all the while, as she is reclaiming her life, Stiles comes back to reclaim Ruby. This was not part of her plan.
Ruby see’s a way to rescue her family from the dangerous cult, through George Axion. He is a rich Vegas-by-the-Sea, style entertainer. And George is running a contest which entails a cash prize for the winner of a student contest. But to everyone’s surprise-Thorn is the one who managed to create the most astonishing contest project of all!
I found this book to quite entertaining, and well worth the read. I enjoyed immensely, and give this book “Ruby’s Fire” five stars, because I think everyone should enjoy a book that makes you feel like a part of the fantasy. Any book that pulls you out of the real world and into another, makes it well worthy of the read!
