Birthmarked Review

362 pages
IN THE ENCLAVE, YOUR SCARS SET YOU APART, and the newly born will change the future.
Sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone and her mother faithfully deliver their quota of three infants every month. But when Gaia’s mother is brutally taken away by the very people she serves, Gaia must question whether the Enclave deserves such loyalty. A stunning adventure brought to life by a memorable heroine, this dystopian debut will have readers racing all the way to the dramatic finish.

I loved this book! The dystopian world created here was dark and original. Gaia is an amazing character who believes in doing what's right no matter what the cost. Despite Gaia's disfiguring scar she doesn't let that diminish her inner strength. I loved the strength that she showed when she tried to find her mother. I think the reason behind the infant quota was interesting. It was also interesting when it was finally revealed how Gaia got her scar. I enjoyed the relationship between Gaia and Leon because it is so unexpected but it isn't the main focus of the book. This novel moves at a fast pace and is extremely difficult to put down. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a good dystopian novel.
