Road Trip Wednesday -- What are you reading?

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:

You're re-reading one of your favs when someone asks the dreaded question: "What's that book about?" Give us your best off-the-cuff blurb of any book, any genre, and have your readers try to guess the title in the comments!

Okay, well...this is hard!  How do I even pick a book to use?!  AAAA!!!  ;)

Here it goes:

"Fifteen year old Nina lives in fear of turning sixteen.  Most girls her age are anxious to receive the Governing Council-ordered tattoo upon their sixteenth birthday, but to Nina, becoming a "sex-teen" is the last thing she wants.  Once she has that tattoo, there's nothing to stop the boys that eye her with such hunger."

Okay, go ahead and guess!  Do you know what book I'm using?

While i actually haven't read this one yet, i own it and it's on my (admittedly long) TBR list.

XVI! I've read it. Nice take on promiscuity. Dystopians make me want to just be a hippie sometimes.
