Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming release they are particularly looking forward to.
THIS WEEK'S PICK:
EVE AND ADAM BY KATHERINE APPLEGATE & MICHAEL GRANT
Sixteen-year-old Evening Spiker lives an fluent life in San Francisco with her mother, EmmaRose, a successful geneticist and owner of Spiker Biotech. Sure, Evening misses her father who died mysteriously, but she's never really questioned it. Much like how she's never stopped to think how off it is that she's never been sick. That is, until she's struck by a car and is exposed to extensive injuries. Injuries that seem to be healing faster than physically possible.
While recuperating in Spiker Biotech's lush facilities, she meets Solo Plissken, a very attractive, if off-putting boy her age who spent his life at Spiker Biotech. Like Evening, he's never questioned anything…until now. Solo drops hints to Evening that something isn't right, and EmmaRose may be behind it. Evening puts this out of her mind and begins her summer internship project: To simulate the creation of the perfect boy. With the help of Solo, Evening uncovers secrets so big they could change the world completely.
This book has only come to my attention recently, but right when I found out about it I knew it was a book I definitely wanted to read. The story sounds really interesting and like a creative new take on the story of Adam & Eve. And it sounds like it would be a great science fiction read. So really, what's not to love?
Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate & Michael Grant will be published October 2, 2012 by Feiwel & Friends.
