Young Adult. 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.
