Ruby Jane Galbraith is an ordinary girl seeking peace in the wake of family tragedy. Her search leads her into a community that seems guided by love. And it's only after she's drawn into its web that she learns its sinister secrets. Ruby Jane Galbraith is empty. Her family has been torn apart and it's all her fault...The only thing that makes sense to her is Fox - a gentle new friend who is wise, soulful and clever, yet oddly naive about the ways of the world. He understands what she's going through and he offers her a chance to feel peace. Fox belongs to a group called the Institute of the Sublime - and Ruby can't stay away from him. So she is also drawn in to what she too late discovers is a terrifying secretive community that is far from the ideal world she expected...Can Ruby find the courage to escape? Is there any way she can save Fox too? And is there ever really an escape from the far-reaching influence of the Institute of the Sublime?..A gripping YA novel about an ordinary girl who is unsuspectingly inducted into a secretive modern-day cult...'A brilliant, searing trip into the world of cults and brainwashing. Her best book yet.' - Justine Larbalestier..

I loved the paranoia the institute put into Ruby’s mind as the book turned from promising to horrifying. The writing was very descriptive so I felt like I was right in there with Ruby and I felt her shortness of breath, the anxiety of the situation and the obsession it filled her with. At first, it’s all idyllic just like their type of system would be with the false promises and perfect outlook but soon enough it’s weird demands and watch out for the people following you so they make this bulletproof bubble around the people in their community to keep them there. It was an interesting little read about a situation you would never really find yourself in so it was a great work of fiction you could just read and enjoy.
