Last year when I read Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien, I wasn't sure what to expect. I read it as part of a book of the month feature for another blog. What I found was another wonderful dystopian tale, that made me anxious to read what comes next. So I have waited. I am anxious to see where this novel will take me. The blurb sounds so exciting!

Description from Macmillan/Roaring Brook Press:
Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister, a handful of supplies, and a rumor to guide her, sixteen-year-old midwife Gaia Stone survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime. In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole?
