Synopsis : IN THE ENCLAVE, YOUR SCARS SET YOU APART, and the newly born will change the future. In the future, in a world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those who live inside the walled Enclave and those, like sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone, who live outside. Following in her mother's footsteps Gaia has become a midwife, delivering babies in the world outside the wall and handing a quota over to be "advanced" into the privileged society of the Enclave. Gaia has always believed this is her duty, until the night her mother and father are arrested by the very people they so loyally serve. Now Gaia is forced to question everything she has been taught, but her choice is simple: enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying. A stunning adventure brought to life by a memorable heroine, this dystopian debut will have readers racing all the way to the dramatic finish.

Critique: "Readers who enjoy adventures with a strong heroine standing up to authority against the odds will enjoy this compelling tale."--"School Library Journal" "A wonderful addition to the dystopian genre."--TeensReadToo.com "Reminiscent of both 1984 and a Brave New World, this gripping page-turner is a perfect intro to futuristic, dystopian fiction. . . . Readers accompany the novel's inspiring heroine on an undertaking brimming with danger, intrigue, and romance."--Education.com "O'Brien's . . . impulsive and spirited heroine . . . is the kind readers adore."--"Booklist" "This science fiction adventure is a brisk and sometimes provocative read, thanks to solid pacing, a resourceful heroine, and a few surprise twists."--"Publishers Weekly" "Well-written and fast-paced."--"VOYA" "In grand dystopic tradition."--"Kirkus Reviews" "It was a very good book that made me think."--Abby, age 12 "I love dystopian futures. Birthmarked is great dystopian future."--Sam, age 16
