The Bar code prophecy

Author: Suzanne Weyn
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Pages: 208
Pub date: Nov 2012
Genre: Fiction/ Action, Sience Fiction

The third book in the Bar Code series, in which one girl struggles to escape the conformity of a dystopian world.
Just as in the original Bar Code Tattoo, the year is 2025 and the mysterious, ubiquitous, and seemingly omnipotent multi-national corporation, Global 1, is in power through their agent President Loudon Waters. But now this ominous situation is experienced through the eyes of sixteen-year-old Grace Morrow.
When Grace finds out that she's adopted, her biological father, who's the head of the Global 1 nano-bot injection project, urges her against getting the bar code tattoo when she turns seventeen. Stunned by the revelations, she goes home to find her adoptive family vanished, and she's determined to find them, turning to the anti-bar-code group Decode. As they uncover more information about tracking, Grace must hide deep underground and under cover, trying to discover information that will allow Decode to figure out what Global 1 is up to, and trying desperately to shut the organization down for good.
I loved this book! But part of it seemed to be in a completley different language. Needed better formating but it was an advanced copy so im sure the finished copy wont be like that! Now onto the book I love it! Oh i already said that! Its not something I would normally read. But its good, really really really good. I just wanna tell you all about it! Buut i cant. The book is so difficult to put down! The end is seriously dissapointing but still worth reading. It seemed like it wanted to rush to the end. Book held with great meaning. side note: I didn't know this was a series and I read it perfectly fine.
