The Birthmarked Trilogy

In this chilling young adult trilogy, the dystopian, post-climate change world is divided between those who live inside the wall, and those, like sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone, who live outside. Gaia and her mother are midwives, and they're required to "advance" three babies per month to the Enclave. But when Gaia’s mother is brutally taken away by the very people she serves, Gaia must question whether the Enclave deserves such loyalty. A stunning adventure brought to life by a memorable heroine, these books will have readers racing all the way to the dramatic finish. School Library Journal said "Readers who enjoy adventures with a strong heroine standing up to authority against the odds will enjoy this compelling tale" and Publishers Weekly hailed the first book "a brisk and sometimes provocative read, thanks to solid pacing, a resourceful heroine, and a few surprise twists."
