Tara’s July Recommendation

Pure by Julianna Baggott

“This book is one of the weirdest, most imaginative, and visually compelling books I have ever read. The setting is a dystopic, post-apocalyptic version of America.  Years ago a series of nuclear detonations wiped out the face of the planet, leaving all of the surviving humans severely deformed.  After the detonations, people woke up fused to whatever objects they were closest to when the detonations went off.  Some people are even fused to each other.  The only humans who survived unscathed live in what is called “The Dome”.  This is a large city housed within a protective barriere, and no one is supposed to go in or out of it.  Two teenagers, Pressia, who grew up outside the Dome and Partridge, who lives inside, will eventually meet and form a bond with each other.  Whether that bond will stand the tests that this dark world throws at them, that is for the reader to find out”.
