She'd imagined her capture a million different ways.

They'd arrive for her like thieves in the night, steal her from her bed and imprison her in the city.

Or maybe they'd corner her during a regular scavenging trip. They'd tie her up and throw her in the back of their armored cars and then they'd Mark her and strip her of her free will in an instant.

These were the things that kept her up at night.

These were the nightmares.

What none of those scenarios had ever included though, was going willingly...but that was exactly what her brother had done.

Rachel has spent her entire life Unmarked and hiding from a government that would Mark her and strip her of her free will in an instant. Without their mandatory Mark you cannot shop, go to school, or be a part of society. Worst of all, you become the prey in their twisted game of cat-and-mouse.

When her brother flees to the city to be Marked, she dares to follow him into a society that holds a dark secret, where the citizens are nothing but pawns in a much more sinister game.  Along the way, she makes an unconventional alliance and finds herself fighting for a cause that might just end her life.

I agree with @Regal_Maiden, this kind of reminds me of the 
                              Uglies. However, the synopsis is extremely similar to the plot of the Bar Code series, and I think you could draw a lot of parallels between this story and that one.

Marked is an interesting science fiction novel. Good book cover.

Can I just say, the moment I read your synopsis I was reminded of the Uglies trilogy by Scott Westerfield. Have you read it? If not, it's a fun series and you should try it. Anyway, off to read the first chapter xD

Bar code series, that sounds interesting! I'll have to look into reading it. Is it on Wattpad? :)
