    I love this book it is awesome. I think that it is kinda sad at the moment. I mean come on was the other depress when she was writing this book. her dad dies her mom get depressed and her freind move far away to Arkansaw the only happy part is when her and her crush get together!!!!!!!!!!! but it is sad at the moment but i think it will get better. i hope it will get better!!!!!!!!

  2. lakyn — December 9, 2011 @ 4:04 pm

    ok its gotten better! i like it alot now it makes me really happy that things r going well for her now! it kinda sad still though that all this bad stuff has happend to her it makes me want to cry! well she got her dream boy freind! that is all bye!!!!!!!!!

  3. Brendon Hackett — December 9, 2011 @ 5:41 pm

    so far this book is good, but could have less crying and more action parts but so far its good
    so far im on chapter nine so im not that far in the book

    I LOVE this book! it is tottally AWESOME! i agree with lakyn that is a really sad book. i can’t amagine living in that time, with the clothes they wear and stuff. i can’t belaive her dad killed himself… (sad face!) and her mom went into super depression mode. and like tottally ignores Kayla. She makes her get a job, Then Kayla loses her best friend.

    This book is so great! I don’t wanna give anything away. But iut’s a real nail-biter. This would be a terrible future. I would hate the bar-code tattoo’s. Can NOT wait to read the second book.(:

  6. Aspen Jarvis — December 14, 2011 @ 4:53 pm

    *It’s.

  7. kylie — December 15, 2011 @ 4:26 pm

    AHHHH! i absolutley LOVE

  8. kylie — December 15, 2011 @ 4:30 pm

    AHHHH! i absolutley LOVE this book! i can’t belaive Kayla and Zekeal are “dating”, and i can’t belaive Amber moved! i am gettin very angry, i TOTTALLY did not see that coming! HE WORKS FOR TATTOO GEN!!!! i love this book. (hehe)=D

  9. kylie — December 15, 2011 @ 4:34 pm

    i agree with layken atleast her and, Mfunmbe? are dating now. i think they make a cute couple. YAY! she finally met Eutonah, that makes me happy. i am SO glad that Kayla dumped zekeal and went away. but it makes me sad that her mom died. but i mean i kindof saw it comeing. after all she did go into super depression mode. Nedra bothers me.

  10. kylie — December 15, 2011 @ 4:39 pm

    I FINSHED THE BOOK! (!!!!!!!!if you have not finished it don’t read this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) this is like the dumbest ending EVER! i mean i’m glad that Eutonah is alive after the tattoo gen raid but still dumbest endind EVER! i am so happy that Mfumbe got out of jail. it’s so cool how they can talk with their minds and stuff. it was really cool when she brought that bird back to life. although i wonder what happened to all the other resisters that where in the abandoned skii lodge. & i can’t wait until they go to the meeting or what ever.I HAVE TO READ THE SECOND BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This book is great !! I normally dont like reading books, but .. Im like, hooked onto this one ! I cant wait to read the 2nd one !! One more thing .. They is no way on earth i’d want a Bar Code Tattoo. Just saying. :)

  12. lfolker — December 19, 2011 @ 8:59 am

    Why wouldn’t you want a Bar Code Tattoo? Wouldn’t it make life easier??? I’m just curious as to your thoughts on that…

  13. Lisa Deleon — December 18, 2011 @ 10:28 am

    There **

  14. Kylie — December 19, 2011 @ 4:49 pm

    I think I wouldn’t want the tattoo cuz its just like if the public schools make you were a uniform its a form of “following” I guess…I can’t think of a better word. I dint like to be like every one else. I want to be my org person and not labeled like a cab of beans. I just think its lame! And I don’t like lameness!B-)

  15. Kylie — December 19, 2011 @ 4:53 pm

    Own**… Can**…

  16. Lisa Deleon — December 20, 2011 @ 9:09 pm

    I don’t think i’d want a barcode tattoo because .. It’s pretty much just another way for people to find out EVERYTHING && ANYTHING about you. It’s just weird to me ! Also, if something goes wrong with your tattoo then .. You’re screwed ! Just like what happened to some people in the book. Lol.

  17. Kylie — December 21, 2011 @ 6:58 pm

    I agree with Lisa

  18. Kylie — December 21, 2011 @ 7:03 pm

    I just can’t even explain how much I love this book!!! I think my favorite character would either be mfumbe or eutonah. I’ve actually read the book before but I didn’t really remember it that well. All I knew was that it was an omazing book!

  19. lakyn — December 22, 2011 @ 1:13 pm

    what a good x i mean come on zeke/x shot her in the arm! also radied were she lived and killed and captured some of her freinds. come on what kinda guy does that. if a guy did that to me they would not live or at liastred happliy i would torcher them so stinken bad. just to get them back

  20. lakyn — December 22, 2011 @ 1:18 pm

    i hate so bad how tis book ends it suck. and i cant belive the author coulr even think of this it so cool. i alsp thim=nk that they should start the second on more resonble i hate how it stars. yes i have the se ond on but still. so yea thats all bye

  21. Abby W. — December 22, 2011 @ 4:02 pm

    i really liked this boook! i cannot belive how the tattoo was ruining everones lives. Can’t they take a hint. do away with it!

  22. Abby W. — December 22, 2011 @ 4:04 pm

    My favorite character was mfumbe. He was the only one who was as he seemed. everyone else was hiding behimd a mask. curse Zeke!!!

  23. Lisa Deleon — December 23, 2011 @ 9:31 am

    This book is SO great !! At first i thought that this book would have been kind of dumb .. But, this book is pretty great ! I just got lost a couple times. But, i understand it all now !! This book to me is all about, lies, betrayal & doing whats best, but also .. Fighting for what you really want to happen. She didnt give up. This book has a good lesson to it.

  24. Lisa Deleon — December 23, 2011 @ 9:36 am

    But yeah, i wouldnt want to get the barcode tattoo. Its just .. Its too weird to me. I honestly cant imagine what would happen if the real world did actually have Barcode Tattoos. That would be scary ! And im not sure wether i can run away from it like Kayla did. Everyone told her to get it, but she risked getting caught and she did what she thought was right. Then, in the end .. It all pulled through.

  25. lfolker — January 2, 2012 @ 9:25 am

    You know that there is another book in the series, right? I’m glad that you liked the book.

  26. Aspen Jarvis — January 3, 2012 @ 11:07 am

    This would be wayy scary if it happened in real life! LLike Ahg! I wouldn’t get the barcode tattoo at all that sounds wayyy scary! Too scary for me I’m a chickin. Haha.

  27. Aspen Jarvis — January 3, 2012 @ 11:08 am

    My favorite part in this book is when Taylor and Kayla are together. They sound so cute together. Agh! And he gave up everything for her. Zeke was just an inconsiderant, conceited, jerk. I’m glad Kalya left him.

  28. Aspen Jarvis — January 3, 2012 @ 11:09 am

    Last post! This book was oneof my favorite’s I’ve been wanting to read it for a while now, I’ve seen it a ton! I’m glad Mrs. Folker had it in her book club and I had the chance to read it! Thank you Mrs. Folker!!(:

  29. Abby W. — January 3, 2012 @ 11:24 am

    i really liked this book. i thought it was realy full of action. there were some things that she would do that i would go WHY!! kind of like choosing Zeke over mfumbe.

  30. Abby W. — January 3, 2012 @ 11:26 am

    the end of this book was okay. i thought that it was kind of confusing when she got shot. they jumped form the actoin scene to a cabin scene. i had to read it through again to understand. it did leave me hanging however.

  31. kylie taylor — January 3, 2012 @ 11:28 am

    i can’t wait to read the second book! i thinks it is going to be amazing! i think kayla and mfumbe make a good couple, i think they are better than her and zeke. i am still just very upset by the way it ended. it could have atleast went on for like two-10 more pages, atleast!!!!!!!!!!! i am so glad that eutonah is alive!(sigh of releif) AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  32. kylie — January 3, 2012 @ 5:12 pm

    i really dolove this book! is it wierd that i can read a book multipletimes and still love it so much?? well anyways, i am glad that kayla and zeke split. although i was surprised that he was working with tattoo gen. i wonder why they want kayla so bad, i mean if she was reluctant to get it in the first place and she fought so hard against it in the first place. i think if she did get it she would be like her dad and be oober depressed. and i don’t think that she got the skitzefrenic gene in her family. and i think that, that is really mean to hold that against someone just because the gene runs in on her dads side of the family. i mean, she might not even have it. its just not right!

  33. kyla — October 5, 2012 @ 5:26 pm

    this is realy hapining if it dose id rather die than get the barcoad tatoo if your with me type 😉

  34. mandi — February 8, 2013 @ 9:10 am

    i like this book

  35. Ty Larsen — February 10, 2013 @ 5:31 pm

    So far, I like this book. I didn’t pick this book, but I am okay with it. It’s interesting to think about everyone having a barcode tatoo. I am wondering why people die because of the barcode. Other people have lost their jobs, their homes, and have had to move because their barcodes destroyed their lives and no longer work.

  36. zachary vantassell — February 11, 2013 @ 3:41 pm

    This book is a good thing to read if you want to read a book about a girl trying to change life.

  37. Mikai Ricketts — February 11, 2013 @ 7:24 pm

    So far I am really enjoying this book!! I think it is very interesting and I really think that Kayla has a tough life, I mean come on her dad died because of a tattoo that he got and now she’s trying to find out all about it I think it’s pretty sad. And on top of that, her mom is really depressed because of it. But I still think it’s a pretty good book. I can’t wait to read more!

  38. Ty Larsen — February 15, 2013 @ 6:38 pm

    I recommend this book for everyone. I think it’s dumb that you have to get a bar code when your seventeen. I would rather die than get a bar code because bar codes are for sissies. It surprised me when Nedra had a bar code tatoo.

  39. Mikai Ricketts — February 16, 2013 @ 5:03 pm

    I love this book!! This book is a good book. It is sad at times but I still like it. I really want to know why everyone is getting hurt, dying and even having to move out of there homes because of the Barcode tattoo. Why? What does utter do to you?? Why did it kill Kaylas dad, and what will it do to Kayla?

  40. Mikai Ricketts — February 16, 2013 @ 5:03 pm

    I love this book!! This book is a good book. It is sad at times but I still like it.

  41. Lizzy Dabb — February 19, 2013 @ 3:57 pm

    I really enjoyed this book it is full of suspense and you never know whats going to happen. I have already finished it it is so good!! i really love all of the characters!

  42. kaylee derring — February 19, 2013 @ 8:17 pm

    so far this book has been awesome I like it alot…So Kayla has had a hard life, her dad is dead and she is trying to find out how he died. I am very curious on how people are dying…can’t wait to read some more.!!!!

  43. Ty Larsen — February 20, 2013 @ 6:31 pm

    Its crazy how zekeal is trying to trick kayla into thinking that he is her friend but of cores it didn’t work. There is a lot of fighting and hiding but that’s what makes it fun. Anyway this is a great book.

  44. zachary vantassell — February 21, 2013 @ 2:04 pm

    This is a good book to read if you want to read about a girl trying to change everybodys live that has a bar code tattoo.

  45. Mikai Ricketts — February 24, 2013 @ 9:23 pm

    I love this book so much!! This book is probably the best book I have ever read!! I think that Kayla and Zeke should go out and start dating. I have a feeling that they are going to actually, they are pretty close. Well..can’t wait to read more!

  46. Lizzy Dabb — February 25, 2013 @ 4:20 pm

    I really enjoyed the mix between romance and adventure. I was glad when Mfumbe and Kayla ended up together!!!!!! Love this book!!

  47. kaylee derring — February 25, 2013 @ 5:56 pm

    This book is awesome! @ Mikai Ricketts. I think they should go out to because they are the perfect couple.love this book.

  48. kaylee derring — February 25, 2013 @ 5:58 pm
