Bar Code Rebellion book 2

by Suzanne Weyn

Rated: Mild

Kayla, the main character of this and The Bar Code Tattoo, is not only actively fighting the government about the issue of the tattoos, she also seems to be pivotal in the rebellion’s slim chance of success against the system. Many of the rebels believe that there is more to this tattoo than is obvious, and as they investigate further, they are amazed at just how correct they are.

This is a very good follow-up, and together with the first book, the author weaves a darn good yarn. Unfortunately, it once again suffers from extremely abrupt writing and lack of smooth transitions from one part of the narrative to the next. Although the ending is good, and very interesting, it is too sudden. On one page, the climax is nearing, and on the next, it is over. And so is the book.

Rated: Mild. Fewer than 10 instances of mild language, mostly taking the Lord’s name in vain.
