Barcode RP. N e one up for it???

Post by Lil_Suqirrel2 on Fri Sep 04, 2009 11:46 pm

Has anyone read the book Barcode by Suzanne Weyn? I haven't read all of it yet but I have read a little. You don't have to have read the books but just know about it and know what the plot is about.
If you would like to join me I want to do a post similar to the book.

If you haven't heard of it here's the synopsis of the book
Bar code
It's 2025, and the thing to do on your 17th birthday is to get a bar code tattoo, which is used for everything from driver's licenses to shopping. Kayla, almost 17, resists because she hates the idea of being labeled. Then the tattoos begin to drive people to commit suicide, Kayla's father among them, and she soon finds out that the markings contain detailed information about their bearers, including their genetic code. When the government, controlled by a corporation called Global-1, makes the tattoo mandatory, Kayla joins a teen resistance movement and falls for a gorgeous guy, unaware that he's a double agent. She discovers she has some psychic ability and has confusing visions of future events. Forced to run away after being implicated in her mother's accidental death, she eventually joins other resisters hiding in the Adirondack Mountains, finds romance with an old friend, and learns to harness her psychic powers to fight Global-1 and fulfill her visions. Like M. T. Anderson's Feed (Candlewick, 2002), this novel examines issues of individuality versus conformity and individual freedom versus governmental control.
