Review: Sneak @Booksneeze

From the book description:
n a future United States under the power of a charismatic leader, everyone gets the Mark at age thirteen. The Mark lets citizen shop, go to school, and even get medical care—but without it, you are on your own. Few refuse to get the Mark. Those who do . . . disappear.

Logan Langly went in to get his Mark, but he backed out at the last minute. Now he’s on the run from government agents who will stop at nothing to capture him. But Logan is on a mission to find and save his sister, Lily, who disappeared five years ago on her thirteenth birthday, the day she was supposed to receive her Mark.

I received the book, Sneak, in exchange for writing an honest review. The second in the series, it continues the story of Logan Langly. A boy who has escaped the Mark and joined a group of Markless called the Dust. He works to discover where his sister, Lily, has disappeared to years before. When he finds she's in a prison called Acheron, he starts the adventure with his friends that will help him to recover her.

Not having read the first in the series, the book was still a very good read. The series is aimed at middle school aged readers and up. It does utilize some Christian references to help explain the way Logan processes his struggles. The story line following many of those from the book of Revelations.
