Synopsis:

And girl created boy…

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?

REVIEW:

Eve and Adam was a fun, quick read. It was an extremely interesting story. All of the conflictive relationships were a little confusing at time. Terra Vs. Evening; Terra Vs. Aislin; Evening Vs. Solo, and on and on.

I did love how the chapters were from multiple character POV's. Most of the time, the story traded off between Eve and Solo, this was a perfect way to feel the character's out and find a way to relate to them. It was done very well.

This book is set in present day but it has a very dystopian feel to it. So, if you enjoy Young Adult and Science Fiction and Dystopian, this book is for you.

Overall, a very nice book to pick up at the local library, but I don't think I will be buying it for my personal library. I thought about giving this book 5 stars, but there was just something missing for me. But, it was excellent, I am not saying you shouldn't read it!

4 stars for Eve and Adam. So close to perfect, but not quite.
