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?
A young adult technological novel, Eve and Adam was a highly entertaining read. The story starts very simply--Eve is hit by a streetcar, loses a leg and almost dies. Once she gets to the hospital, though, things really start to heat up. Meeting Solo, a strange young man who follows Eve's imperious mother's orders, Eve begins to question her life and the unusual events going on around her. With the well-written and well-developed characters, getting into the story was easy. Solo's story offers a bit of adventure and mystery. Eve's best friend Aislin offers a tragic and touching cast to the book. Adam, Eve's perfect man, is child-like and slightly humorous. Even Eve's rigid and unemotional mother Terra has her own hidden drama. These characters weave together to form a book that will make you question everything you ever thought about science, relationships, and how far you would go for your morals.
