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?
Genre: Science Fiction
I thought that Eve and Solo's relationship was actually really cute. He liked her even though he was plotting to take down her Mom, I like that kind of sappy cliche kind of stuff. It was amusing to see Eve try to get away from Solo, but he was relentless always coming back even when she didn't want him to. As Eve was creating her "perfect" boy Solo was standing in the background watching inventively to her every move. And even as her boy came to life, she chose Solo over him. I thought that was adorable.
I also really enjoyed the part about learning all these thing about genetics, I'm a geek that way. Genetics have always interested me, see how things work you know. Even though it is pretty much impossible for a human to make another human being from scratch, I liked the idea. Overall, very well written other than the fact that it was lacking Michael Grant's usual graphic descriptions. Job well done.
