The third book in the Bar Code series, in which one girl struggles to escape the conformity of a dystopian world.


Just as in the original Bar Code Tattoo, the year is 2025 and the mysterious, ubiquitous, and seemingly omnipotent multi-national corporation, Global 1, is in power through their agent President Loudon Waters. But now this ominous situation is experienced through the eyes of sixteen-year-old Grace Morrow.

When Grace finds out that she's adopted, her biological father, who's the head of the Global 1 nano-bot injection project, urges her against getting the bar code tattoo when she turns seventeen. Stunned by the revelations, she goes home to find her adoptive family vanished, and she's determined to find them, turning to the anti-bar-code group Decode. As they uncover more information about tracking, Grace must hide deep underground and under cover, trying to discover information that will allow Decode to figure out what Global 1 is up to, and trying desperately to shut the organization down for good.

BarCode 3

The Bar Code Prophecy

by Suzanne Weyn

published by Scholastic Inc.


Frightening and amazing at the same time. Frightening because something like this could happen. Amazing because the author did a great job writing this story.

An apocalyptic tale for school age children. The bar code reminded me of the "mark of the devil' foretold in the Book of Revelations. The asteroid/space stations are the perfect answer to Wormwood.

I enjoyed the manner in which the author made the Native Americans a major part of this book. Even now, we are inundated with information from the Hopi about the 'end of days'. The author does a great job of introducing this idea into the story.

I'm not certain we will so easily differentiate between the good and the evil, but our future could be hauntingly similar to the one so skillfully created in this series.

A wonderful series by a fabulous author.
