The Bar Code Prophecy by Suzanne Weyn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Goodreads: 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.
My thoughts: The plot thickens as our protagonist proves to be a most important player in the Bar Code Prophecy. She goes to get the tattoo which also includes, perhaps, a small tracking device. Not only that but she discovers who she really is. Well, her parentage. Answers are still floating around and not tangibly expressed but the fat lady has not sung.
Looking forward to the final installment. It really is just getting exciting.
