The third book in the Bar Code series, in which one girl struggles to escape the conformity of a dystopian world

Just as in the original Bar Code Tattoo, the year is 2025 and the mysterious, ubiquitous, and seemingly omnipotent multinational 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-barcode group Decode. As they uncover more information about tracking, Grace must hide deep underground and undercover, trying to discoverinformation that will allow Decode to figure out what Global 1 is up to, and trying desperately to shut the organization down for good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Such a Shame The main problem with not just this book but this entire trilogy is that these books are so short that there's never really any fleshing of ...well...anything really. The relationships between all the characters, romantic and platonic, all seem kind of shallow because there's no real buildup in these relationships and how they came about. The plot also left much to be desired as well as the transition between scenes. It was honestly disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Boring and A Letdown It was boring and didn't really have much of a plot. It seemed like the plot was slow yet fast, boring and they still didn't you any details. The characters were boring as well and the ending could have been better and could have had way more description. The plot seemed to move away from what the inside cover said.

Editorial Reviews

The Bar Code Tattoo

"This is a great book . . . An excellent tie in to discuss contemporary issues of proposed US I.D. cards and civil rights, as well as corporate domination and centralization of ownership." -KLIATT

"This novel examines issues of individuality versus conformity and individual freedom versus governmental control." -School Library Journal
