Kayla has decided to hide in small cave, where she lays concealed by the darkness. Also on the 5th paragraph on page 227, it described that Kayla was slowly losing her cautiousness while listening to the crickets and other insects. Again on the last paragraph on page 227, a pair of hands grabs her. She sat up smacking her head against the roof of the cave, meaning that the cave is very low, also the author writes that she grabs at rocks in the cave, Kayla in this scene is showing that she is very desperate, to resist against this outer force.

On Page 143, paragraph 2, Kayla was at home with her drunken mother, when suddenly the fire alarm went off, she charged down the stairs to find out that her mother Ashley Reed was trying to burn the tattoo of her skin. Her sleeve was already on fire, the fire slowly started to spread on to the curtain. The setting in this part of the story is a house, which is going up in flames.

She creeps in attempting to steal the poultry, when suddenly to arms pushes a trap door near her feet open, she rushes over to a knife, and grabs it firmly in her hand. Here Kayla is very shocked and scared. She was scared that the person who is pushing the trap door, would arrest her, and her mission to not get a tattoo would be over. Kayla is also extremely shocked, she was not expecting that somebody would still be awake at this late time period.

The setting in the novel heavily effected how Kayla, the main protagonist reacted in the book. Most of the time Kayla was scared and was trying to stay away from Global-1 officers. She started from a normal girl, who was talented in art, to a law breaker who was considered a murderer.

Kayla was on the run, when she found out that her face was on the news and that officers were after her. When she walked into a pub to get a drink, the waiter looked at her, and froze on spot.

Kayla had to run where ever she was. Finally she came across this lady who also did not support the bar code tattoo. She gave Kayla a fake stick on tattoo to last her for a while.

POW!!!!!!!

POW is a game when everyone gets into one big circle. Either Harry Or I Will stand in the middle. We will point at someone and say POW. The person who got pointed at, has to duck as quickly as they can. The 2 people standing beside the person who ducked, has to point at each other and yell POW! Whoever yells it first stays alive and the person who lost is OUTTTTTTT!!!!!

When there are only 2 people left in the game. We will have a stand out. The last 2 opponents will stand back to back, and start walking. When I say, FIRE. The 2 opponents will turn around and yell POW at each other as fast as they can, the same rules apply.
