The Unidentified by Rae Mariz
Kid and her friends live in a world where schools have failed and have been replaced by social networking and games at the malls. Students work their way up the levels hoping to become "branded" by corporate sponsors. Hanging out with her friends one day Kid witnesses a dummy being thrown over a high railing in a fake suicide scene staged by a group protesting the constant surveillance of all the teens. Only Kid is disturbed and interested enough to investigate who might be responsible for the protest. Her interest attracts the attention of both the Unidentified and some of the sponsors who think Kid might just lead them to the next big thing.
