A dystopian novel about a society of haves, who escaped an apocalypse in a futuristic dome-covered city, and have-nots, who survived the nearly destroyed outside world. The have-nots are almost entirely marked or mutated in some manner.

PURE centers around the story of Pressia, a 16-year-old survivor with a doll’s head fused into her left hand, and Partridge, an unmarked Pure who has escaped the Dome to find his mother, certain that she has survived the cataclysm.

Another dystopian, I know I can't seem to escape them and I want to devour every single one of them that I run across, but there's totally not enough time in the day. However, I'm totally excited about this one. How interesting, is it that the main character was born with a doll's head fused into her left hand? Hmm...I want to know more already.
