Comment Using the "Core Four" StrategiesThe book I was reading is called The Bar Code Tattoo by Suzanne Weyn. I already finished reading the book, but I stopped at page 101 to work on these strategies, but I had a technical problem so could't post them until now; without further ado, let's start.
PredictI think Zekeal is going to get in trouble with Kayla and Nedra, because he's supposed to be with Nedra, but he kissed Kayla. Additionally, I think that if Nedra figures this out she's going to want revenge against Kayla, and at the end, Kayla will have a broken heart (stopped at page 101 of the book The Bar Code Tattoo).
What if this happened in the real world? We're not so far from it, we already created artificial intelligence, why not tattoos that have our information on them?. What could Kayla's visions mean? Could she be seeing the future? Is that how everything is going to end? I have too many questions in my head at this point.
What I want to clarify are some of the meanings of words I found hard to understand.
Compel (page 5) meaning : force or oblige (someone) to do something.
Smithreens (page 5) meaning : small pieces.
Salesclerk (page 18) meaning : an assistant who sells goods in a retail store.
There are so much more words I had to look up, or read twice to understand what they meant.
SummarizeA summary of what has happened so far in the story would go like this...SPOILER ALERT
Kayla and her family are another victim of the bar code, her father killed himself after going into a deep depression "because of the tattoo", at least that's what Kayla's mom says. Kayla has a friend named Amber, but unfortunately Amber's family is "attacked" by the bar code as well, and in an emergency Amber has to leave. Kayla finds herself completely alone until while she was walking found Zekeal, and he takes her with the "Decode" group of the high school. Everything seems to go well...so far.
Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed, and see you next time!
