Summary (from 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.”
This novel was so fun! I can’t wait to see where it goes next.
I love books where you think things are one way and then all of a sudden you learn something new and it becomes totally different. It should happen a lot more than it does, right? But it definitely happens here.
I haven’t read any of Katherine Applegate’s books but I read the first two of Michael Grant’s Gone series and hope to catch up at some point because I liked it.
This was an incredibly fun series debut and I can’t wait to see where the second book goes.
