And girl created boy…First: a car accident and a hospital that fears Eve may never be able to run again. Her mother, Terra, is a significant character in the science world and when she insists on bringing Eve, straight out of surgery to Terra’s own science facility, there is no questioning. Second: a recovery room and boredom. To quench Eve’s boredom, her mother gives her a science experiment to play with: Eve has to create the perfect boy. Eve creates Adam.
In the beginning, there was an apple—
And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker’s head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal.
Just when Eve thinks she will die—not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy.
Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect... won’t he?--Goodreads
I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book. It sounded like a thoughtful concept, and one which would be great to read about if done the right way. Well these two authors wrote it in exactly the right way because I loved every minute of it.
“I am thinking of an apple when the streetcar hits and my leg severs and my ribs crumble and my arm is no longer an arm but something unrecognizable, wet and red.”-Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate, p. 1 (ARC)
Rated PG-13 for crazy experiments, a car accident, blood and gore, and sexual references.
