Pure is a post-apocalyptic story involving humans who have objects attached to their bodies. If, for example, when the detonations exploded, you were touching a radio, it melted or bonded to your body. If you were touching another person, you might have fused to each other. The story starts ten years after the Detonations so people have accepted their deformities and don't make a big deal out of them. Every child must become a soldier once they turn 16, and Pressia, one of the two main characters, is going to be 16 in two weeks. The other main character is Partridge. He has become very suspicious of the Pures who live in the Dome. Pures are people who were untouched by the Detonations and have nothing fused to their bodies. He has decided to search for some answers to his mother's death, and the secret attempts to enhance humans. In his search for answers, he enters Pressia's world.
I definitely recommend this story to strong, dystopian-loving readers.

I love a good mystery, and although I correctly guessed the murderer in the first chapter, I still thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns.
