Eve & Adam
By: Micheal Grant and Katherine Applegate
Meet Evening Spiker. More commonly known as E. V. Okay, so, I liked Eve well enough. She was smart and wasn’t as stupid as some heroines in books. And her character was cool. Nicely done.
Then she gets in a car crash, gets an awful, horrible injury, and is rushed to the hospital. Her leg is totally messed up and all the doctors think she is going to lose it.
But before Evening Spiker’s head clears and the doctors decide what to do, a strange boy named Solo show up. And he calls her Eve. No one calls her that but Solo, he’s cool.Hes a skater/surfer boy, complete with shaggy blond hair and a killer grin. I like him a lot.
Anyway, he takes her to her mother’s research facility where her mother has doctors to heal her. I don’t like her mother, shes one of those characters that the authors make you hate but you know is only doing whats best. Like “I know you only want whats best for me but…I still hate you.”
And then Eve is left alone to heal. Her friend is called in to keep her occupied. I don’t like her friend. Her friend is crazy and funny and usually i would like the ore brash kind of character, but…I don’t know, she just wasn’t my type.
Just when Eve thinks she will die—not from her injuries, (because the wounds are just magically better…) but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy. Oh yeah. I would just die for that chance. Come on! That’s awesome!
Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect. But more than just Adam is being crated here in the facility. What is really going on with her mother? Why is Solo protecting her?
A couple of huge plot twists later…
Adam appears. And he’s perfect. …Or is he?
Its a good book that I recommend to anyone who likes science-fiction, romance, and adventure.
