Book Review - Partials

Partials (Partials, #1)Partials by Dan Wells
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another dystopian story. Humans were nearly wiped out in a battle with Partials. Partials are genetically engineered beings created by humans (of course). While both sides seem to be at a truce, the humans are frantic. None of their newborn children live past a few days.

Our heroine, a young medic name Kira Walker, is determined to find a cure for the newborns even if it means making contact with the Partials who haven't been seen in 11 years. And, even if it means giving up her own life.

This was a good young adult book. It brings up lots of questions about state control, bigotry and what it means to be "human". I'm looking forward to the next book which looks to be out in 2013.
