Eve & Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
Amazon / Goodreads
Blurb via Goodreads-
"Sixteen-year-old Evening Spiker lives an affluent 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 Emma-Rose 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."
I loved Eve & Adam! Being that I am not a huge dystopian or Sci-fi fan, I was a little nervous going into Eve & Adam at first. After reading the first few chapters my nerves went away and I was instantly hooked. Eve & Adam is an excellent, fact- paced read. The Sci-fi aspects were written extremely well without being too overwhelming, which also made me really enjoy the contemporary feel of the book. The characters were interesting, entertaining and at times humorous. This was a wonderful read that left me wanting more. I also love the gorgeous cover, it fit perfectly with the book.
5 out of 5 stars!
