With the potential for cloning already a reality, today's teens will soon have to face some major ethical questions. Who has a right to determine a person's genetic make-up? And how will we treat our genetic underclass? In Pure, fifteen-year-old Lenni is a gifted healer to some and to others only skidge—an illegal genetic experiment gone horribly wrong. Set in a future where genetic engineering of humans is forbidden, this novel tells of Lenni's escape from Dawn, a community controlled by the Genetic Purity Council.
Canadian Children's Book News - March 1, 2008
"Pure is a fascinating read—Krossing successfully engages the reader and raises several ethical questions that provide further food for thought. Pure is a welcome addition to the speculative fiction genre, and is a fascinating and thought-provoking novel that will not easily be forgotten."
