Synopsis: The first book in the exciting Bar Code series.
Individuality vs. conformity. Identity vs. access. Freedom vs. control. The bar code tattoo.
The bar code tattoo. Everybody’s getting it. It will make your life easier, they say. It will hook you in. It will become your identity.
But what if you say no? What if you don’t want to become a code? For Kayla, this one choice changes everything. She becomes an outcast in her high school. Dangerous things start happening to her family. There’s no option but to run . . . for her life.
My Thoughts: I FLEW through this book. It’s not because it was the most amazing book I have ever read or the characters were perfect. It was just such an interesting concept where you can have something tattooed on you that has all your info encoded in it. I enjoyed it and I liked the main character a lot. I’m already reading the second one now and I am interested in seeing where things go and how things turn out.
