My review for Birthmarked:
I give Birthmarked 3.5 stars. In the beginning, it’s a little slow and slightly confusing. But once you get to the middle, things start to pick up and make sense. I like the idea of how the book’s plot is laid out. The main character’s name is Gaia Stone and she’s a midwife. As a midwife, she must advance mothers’ babies to the Enclave to be raised. But Gaia helps out a family who have done something illegal, so she’s sent to prison. She finds out that her parents were also sent to the prison not too long before her. She finds out that something happens to her father. What is it? Her mother is sent to the Bastion and there’s a political prisoner in there too. Gaia’s mother is also a midwife so is she helping the political prisoner with her baby? Will Gaia escape the prison to find her mother? Gaia knows that she has twin brothers, but since they were advanced she doesn’t know who they are. Can the birthmarks her mother gave to each of the babies she advance help her find them?
