    Eve and Adam

    Expected publication: October 2012 by Feiwel & Friends
    Eve and Adam by by 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
    Ok seriously? This sounds awesome!! I mean I am Biologist myself, (PhD in stem cell research) so obviously books like this which focus on genetics is something I just love! The names sound a little weird, who would name their child “Evening” but….
    But, the name Solo - totally reminds me of my hero of past times, Han Solo.. ;)
    Totally want to read this!!
    So, what about you my friends? Show me what you are waiting for!
    Much Love,
