Everyone gets the Mark. It gives all the benefits of
citizenship. Yet if getting the Mark is such a good thing, then why does it
feel so wrong?
Set in a future North America that is struggling to recover
after famine and global war, Swipe follows the lives of three kids caught in
the middle of a conflict they didn’t even know existed. United under a
charismatic leader, every citizen of the American Union is required to get the
Mark on their thirteenth birthday in order to gain the benefits of citizenship.
The Mark is a tattoo that must be swiped by special scanners
for everything from employment to transportation to shopping. It’s almost Logan
Langly’s thirteenth birthday and he knows he should be excited about getting
the Mark, but he hasn’t been able to shake the feeling he’s being watched. Not
since his sister went to get her Mark five years ago—and never came back.
When Logan and his friends discover the truth behind the
Mark, will they ever be able to go back to being normal teenagers? Find out in
the first book of this exciting series that is Left Behind meets Matched for
middle-grade readers. Download and start listening now!
