I want to read that...

Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien
From Goodreads: After climate change, on the north shore of Unlake Superior, a dystopian world is divided between those who live inside the wall, and those, like sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone, who live outside. It’s Gaia’s job to “advance” a quota of infants from poverty into the walled Enclave, until the night one agonized mother objects, and Gaia’s parents are arrested.

Badly scarred since childhood, Gaia is a strong, resourceful loner who begins to question her society. As Gaia’s efforts to save her parents take her within the wall, she herself is arrested and imprisoned.

Fraught with difficult moral choices and rich with intricate layers of codes, BIRTHMARKED explores a colorful, cruel, eerily familiar world where one girl can make all the difference, and a real hero makes her own moral code.


Oooh I really like the sound of this one! It is published March 30th 2010 by Roaring Brook Press (US)

I so want to read this too! Dypstopian is my absolute favourite, and I'm hearing great things about this one.

Oh, I've heard about this one this week and I really liked the sound of it. :)

Wow, this does sound good. I've recently been very impressed with the YA dystopian novels that I've read and this sounds like it would be quite good as well.

Me too! Me too! I love the premise for this. Why do books not come with a UK release? Annoying.
