We know you are here, our brothers and sisters . . . Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost-how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.Burn a Pure and Breathe the Ash . . . There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss-maybe just because his family is broken; his father is emotionally distant; his brother killed himself; and his mother never made it inside their shelter. Or maybe it's his claustrophobia: his feeling that this Dome has become a swaddling of intensely rigid order. So when a slipped phrase suggests his mother might still be alive, Partridge risks his life to leave the Dome to find her. When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

Although this series of books are set in a world that's been torn apart, the imagery is beautiful. I was left with very detailed images of everything Baggott described. And, the character development was awesome. I was sucked in from the first page. These books should definitely be made into a movie...

This timeless dystopian tale was brutally honest. There were times when my heart was broken into a million pieces. Pressia’s bravery and hope made her a very enjoyable heroine. She just picked herself up and kept right on going despite all the wretchedness she encountered. All of the characters were...

5.0 Review: Pure by Julianna Baggott
I had a dream last week that I would like to share with y'all. I'm living my life, doing my thing and my kitty cat scratches my arm. I have the cutest little siamese kitten but damn, his claws are like needles! I washed and for some reason dressed the scratch (I'm not usually one for being over caut...
