Literature: XVI
XVI, aka Sixteen, is a Young Adult book by Julia Karr.

In the future, all girls are required to get a tattoo on their wrist at age 16. They say it's for protection; after all, 16 is the legal age for sex. A lot of girls are eager and can't wait to be a "sex-teen", and the boys certainly aren't unhappy.

Nina, however, doesn't like the tattoo and what it stands for—and she soon has worse troubles. Drawn into a conspiracy and unsure who she can trust, Nina must search the city and her heart if she hopes to find out who killed her mother and what happened to her missing father.

A sequel, entitled Truth, is out.
