Badly scarred since childhood, Gaia is a strong, resourceful loner who begins to question her society. As Gaia’s efforts to save her parents take her within the wall, she herself is arrested and imprisoned.
Fraught with difficult moral choices and rich with intricate layers of codes, BIRTHMARKED explores a colorful, cruel, eerily familiar world where one girl can make all the difference, and a real hero makes her own moral code.
Taken from GoodReads.
This book sounds deep, intriguing, and completely riveting. I love the thought of a visually-flawed protagonist, especially in a world of beautiful "Bella-like" characters these days. I also adore this cover. The colours are engaging, and the images are haunting.
