Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate
What if you got the chance to create your perfect partner? You’d be curious to give it a try, wouldn’t you?
Evening (Eve) gets given the ultimate challenge -- create the perfect boy. But there are some ulterior motives in having her do this. Keeping Eve occupied? Or trying to clone a human? Solo, the brooding employee at Eve’s mother’s facility, is determined to uncover the truth. Will it set them free?
I fell in love with this story quickly, the dynamic between Eve and Solo. And even though science played a big part in this novel, I felt the Adam-creation was minimal. I would’ve liked to see a bit more of him. It looks as if this might be a series, so I wouldn’t mind the lack of Adam if it built up in the successive book/s. It seemed, to me, that the book was based on the connection between Solo and Evening (but this is what hooked me, so it’s not a bad thing).
I liked this book because it was easy to read, enjoyable, and well written (plus co-written by my favourite childhood author Katherine Applegate!! -- K.A Applegate then).
It is worth a read for the Eve and Solo budding romance alone. And also for the science (as a former science major, I particularly enjoyed this).
