Fantastic post-apocalyptic dystopia

I loved this book, it's heart breaking, horrifying, disturbing and completely captivating. In a future where people have been left fused to objects, machines, even other people through radiation from some form of possibly nuclear war.

It follows two young adults, struggling to survive in a terrifying vision of the future, one lives safe and yet, not safe, within the dome, a separate society saved from destruction through privileges given by the government. The other lives in the now destroyed wastelands of a future america, scrounging anything to survive and help her grandfather suffering from a now common illness. Partridge, the boy, discovers 'evidence' which leads him to believe his mother, whom he believed to be dead, may now be alive out in the wastelands, and puts together an escape plan from the dome. Pressia meanwhile, is just trying to survive, trying to avoid contact with the new gangs in charge who use overly mutated people as target practice.

Highly recommended for fans of dystopian fiction, and particularly fans of the fallout video game series, as they share many similarities.
