Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
In a world where every seventeen year old is tattooed with a "bar code," which is used for virtually everything, there are many who believe that this convenient identification system holds life threatening data. There is a secret surrounding the Bar Code nanotechnology so ghastly that anyone who discovers it is eliminated. In this futuristic novel, Kayla and her friends are members of a group known as the Bar Code Resistance, and they will not stop until they discover what that secret is. When a commercial advocating for the Bar Code airs starring a teenager who freakishly resembles Kayla, the strangeness has only just begun. Kayla learns that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather part of a cloning experiment. She learns that she is one of six clones, each with an added gene. Kayla must crack the secret of her own life in order to find the true purpose of the Bar Code and the horrifying truth hidden inside. Susanne Weyn's poignant exploration into the technological future will draw many curious readers into her wonderings of the not-to distant world to come. The Bar Code Rebellion has an intriguing plot line that will keep the readers turning page after page, however, this novel falls short of other novels in this genre, such as Scott Westerfield's trilogy, "Uglies."

    THE BAR CODE REBELLION, by Suzanne Weyn, is the second book about seventeen-year-old Kayla Marie Reed and the world she lives in. In 2025, when the novel takes place, everyone, at the age of seventeen, is required to be tattooed with a bar code. The bar code is what people use for everything, from paying for bus fare to getting a job. In the first book about this world, THE BAR CODE TATTOO, Kayla's neighbor, the now-famous Gene Drake, was killed in a struggle because he had discovered something terrible about the tattoo, and wanted to tell the world. <BR/><BR/>More terrible, it seems, than what Kayla and other bar code resistors already know: that the tattoo contains each person's genetic code, gained from the blood sample taken when they are tattooed. These codes can ruin a person's life, if they have problems such as bipolar disorder or Parkinson's disease in their family. That's what happened to Kayla's friend Amber and her parents. <BR/><BR/>Following Gene Drake's example, people everywhere are resisting the tattoo, even though it means forfeiting any chance at a normal life as a part of society. People are burning off the tattoo, or, if they join in time, refusing to get it in the first place. <BR/><BR/>One day, Kayla sees a girl on TV with her face, telling people how happy she is about the bar code tattoo. Next thing she knows, this girl is everywhere, pretending to be Kayla, and promoting the bar code tattoo. Is she a digital fake? Or is there more to it than that? <BR/><BR/>Suzanne Weyn's novel takes place in a scary future society. It's especially scary because it really could come true. We've all read books about what the future will be like, and chances are, none of them are exactly right. Everyone predicts, though, that the government will have more and more control over our daily lives, maybe even getting to the intense and frightening level like that in BAR CODE REBELLION. <BR/><BR/>In this story, characterization takes a backseat to the action, but that's okay, as it's meant to be more about the plot and the setting than it is about the characters. Even though the characters feel a little two-dimensional, it's still a book worth reading, especially for fans of THE BAR CODE TATTOO.

    A thrilling edge-of-your-seat novel

    After reading the first book I knew I had to read this one. With Kayla finding out there's a lot mare to her genetic history than she thought and knowing that their's someone out their wanting to bring her back in she knows she must run and hide. She must fight for what she believes in if she wants to succeed. But when she see's herself on T.V. going against everything she believes in she must go beyond what she thought was ever possible. I would enjoy reading this book over and over again as it never gets old.

    Ban the bar code

    Kayla has said "no" to the bar code tattoo that is "suposed" to make your life easier, but in fact can kill you. She has fought against it. She has lost her parents because of it. She is loosing more friends each day! She has had it up to hear with this bar code. And she needs to put a stop to it....NOW! Before the world goes into chaos. Before G-1 can kill more people. Before David Young kills himself. Kayla, Mfumbe, and August arrive at the U.S. capital to join the many hundreds to march against this bar code. But things go wrong. 700 protesters were captered and forced to be bar coded. And among them is David Young and Mfumbe. If That isn't enough, a fake Kayla keeps showing up on teh news claiming she "loves" her code! There are more of Kaylas out there. 5 more to be exact. There is Kayla the bar code rebellion; Kass the palm reader; Kara the orphan run-away; Kendra the violent wack job; the fake Kayla a drugged clone; and KM-6 a quiet strange clone. Can Kayla and her clones save everyone? Read and find out!

    Amazing! I love how it all came together in this book and how ch

    Amazing! I love how it all came together in this book and how characters from the first book had defining roles in this story. I won't spoil this for anyone by saying that I was really surprised by the real reason Kayla was so critical to the government agency in charge of the bar coding. Definitely not what I expected but brilliant thinking! I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first book. Awesome!

    Dakota and Smith

    A petite blonde girl walks in wearing a small black mini-dress. Her dark brown eyes are lined with eyeliner, her lashes coated in mascara. "I'm Dakota", she announces in an attractive raspy voice.<p>
    Behind Dakota comes a tall boy with black curly hair and electric blue eyes. He is wearing some jeans and a blue T-shirt. "I'm Smith", he informs everyone.
