Birthmarked

Birthmarked by Caragh M. O’Brien

For as long as anyone can remember, it has been the same. It is the duty of those living outside the wall to help support and serve those living within the wall, in the Enclave. For Gaia and her mother, the midwifes of Sector 3, that means each month handing over the first three babies they deliver to the inside, to be raised by adoptive parents within. Unlike life on the outside, these babies are promised all the comforts and education available.

Gaia’s world changes forever though when she comes home one night after a delivering a baby to find that her parents have been arrested and are being held prisoner on the inside. After a soldier questions her about the mother’s midwife practices, Gaia realizes that her parents are in grave danger and that sneaking into the Enclave to rescue them may be their only chance of survival.

In Birthmarked, O’Brien has done a wonderful job creating dystopian future where the only hope of survival lies within one girl who unknowingly holds the key to unlock the mysteries of science and genetics that are slowly destroying a society.
