Swipe series by Evan Angler
Logan knows that everyone needs to get a "Mark" on their wrist at age 13. Without it, they can't get a job, own a home, or even buy a soda. It's not considered a big deal, just a rite of passage. However, when his older sister went to get her Mark, she never came back, and ever since then Logan has had a feeling that he is being watched. When a new student, Erin, reveals that her father has been transferred from the capital to investigate a kidnapper who targets children about to get their Marks, Logan, who is on the cusp of undergoing the procedure, discovers that what seemed like paranoia may have a scary truth behind it. But when he and Erin start to investigate, they learn that the truth may be more complicated, and even scarier, than they could have imagined. While the novel's premise may seem familiar, the strong character development and thorough world-building make it stand out from the dystopian crowd. Recommend it to fans of James Dashner's The Maze Runner and other fast-paced, postapocalyse novels.
