Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien #1: In the Enclave, your scars set you apart, and the newly born will change the future



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




Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime. In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole?

I thought it was really great. I recently read book 2.

You might like it. But I can't be sure when it comes to you

Well, when it comes to genres you haven't read much about

But, I'd say there is no harm in trying the first book out.

That's true. I'll probably end up giving it a try at some point

Need to find it then

Yeah, the beginning was very boring (I put the book aside and read other stuff in between) but it got much better during the middle/end of the book.

Btw has he ever seen the body of his dead sister?
