I think I can sum up this ending in one gif:
Screw you, ending. Screw. You.
This novella is based around Sam, Ruby’s bunkmate from The Darkest Minds. I’ve forgotten a lot from The Darkest Minds so my memory of Sam was hazy, but in Sparks Rise she was freaking badass. Then there was Lucas who was equally badass and just awesome. So read it for them.
We also get a bit of background about Ruby’s life pre-Darkest Minds and it’s hard hitting. So read it for that.
The feels and emotions. Read it for that.
Really just read it.
