Book Review (10).

Birthmarked (Birthmarked #1)

My Thoughts.
Gaia is following in her Mother's footsteps and training to be a midwife.The first three babies born each month are handed over to the Enclave to be adopted and live inside the wall (these included Gaia's two older brothers).
One night arriving home after delivering her first unassisted baby she finds both her parent's have been arrested by the guards of the Protecterate, there is a guard there waiting for her to ask her about important information that her parent's had (a record of all the births of the babies given into the Enclave) Gaia doesn't know anything but was given a ribbon by Old Meg who works with her Mother, not knowing the information they're after is sewn onto the ribbon.
Gaia's time is then spent trying to find a way into the Enclave to save her parents, and once in there trying to find her way out. 
I liked this book way more than I thought I would and now it's straight onto the second book Prized.
I give this book 4/5
A big thanks to Caroline @ Simon And Schuster Australia
