(?   -    ) US author in whose Young Adult Near Future XVI sequence beginning with XVI (2011) the world becomes fully Dystopian when young women reach the age of sixteen and are branded with the eponymous tattoo (the echo of worlds properly addressed in Holocaust Fiction seems inadvertent), registering them as sexually available (see Feminism; Women in SF). The protagonist simultaneously. enters into what becomes a romantic triangle and The Resistance. Truth (2012) advances the plot. [JC]
