Hey everyone! How is your Teen Tech Month going? When you think about technology and the future, are you excited by the endless possibilities and mind-blowing technology we will see in our lifetime? Or do you dread the weird, dark, and creepy things people will do with it? Normally I am a bit of an optimist, but this book description starts to tip me into the other catagory a bit:
In a post-apocalyptic world, Pressia, a
sixteen-year-old survivor with a doll's head fused onto her left hand
meets Partridge, a "Pure" dome-dweller who is searching for his mother,
sure that she has survived the cataclysm.
WHAT? There are many terrible things I have read it dystopian novels, but the idea of having a dolls head fused on my hand freaks me out more than I should admit. If that is exactly the sort of crazy plot-line that makes your ears perk up, Pure by Julianna Baggott may be just the book for you.
Here is the book trailer:
