Book Spotlight: Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

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.

Thanks ATWAT for the copy!
(Can I just start out by saying I LOVE this cover to pieces?)

When Eve gets into an accident, her whole life changes. Whisked away to her mothers facility, she fights to survive her injuries. Or does she? Her body heals at a rapid pace, and questions arise on what really goes on behind the walls of her moms research center. Eve meets Solo, a mysterious guy her age who works for her mom. He takes it upon himself to show Eve the way things truly are and together they embark on a fascinating journey. 

Honestly, I really enjoyed this story. I loved getting a dual view point of what was going on (and sometimes even three point of view). Eve was an interesting character to discover, however, I loved Solo so much more. There’s just so much potential for him as a character and I can’t wait to see how he develops. The relationship between these two was very sweet and real. I really liked having Solo’s input on how he was feeling (I know, I mentioned that already). It was crazy having a novel set in “our time” making everything that much more real. 

Overall, this book is definitely worth the read. I can’t wait to find out what happens next and how the authors are going to unravel the rest of the story. I’ve been thinking up scenarios since I’ve finished the book. Eve and Adam comes out October 2, 2012! Can’t wait to hear what you think!
Happy reading,
