Book Review - Swipe

About the Book
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 13th 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 13th 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.

My Take on the Book
This was a great book that was such an engaging and interactive read. As a fan of books like Harry Potter and the Hunger Games, this book truly draws you in and the characters have you coming back for more. I could not put this down, wondering what the author had in store for me with each page that came next. The story was well written and his characters are ones that you truly can relate to (even though the situation they are in you may not). What I loved about the characters is that you truly see opposite characters building off of one another. Another great aspect of this book is that it is only the beginning, and the author leaves you craving for more once you get to the end!
