Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant; reviewed by Alleana A.
"Evening Spiker (E.V. or Eve for short), is thinking about an apple when she crosses the street and is hit by a car. The next thing she knows, she’s in the hospital with a broken leg, a “flattened” arm, and some bumps and bruises listening to her mother argue with a doctor. Her mother, Terra Spiker, known to her employees as “Terror” Spiker, wants to take her out of the hospital, and the doctor insists that if she does, she’ll die. However, wielding superior money and power, her mother wins the argument. The doctor insists that, “If she dies, it’s on you,” and Solo, a boy about her age who works for her mother, gets her out of the hospital and into an ambulance outside. When Eve arrives at Spiker Biopharmaceuticals, she receives an fourteen hour operation. Bored in recovery, her mom gives her a project – use her technology to design the perfect boy. But when Eve begins to design Adam, she has no idea what she’s getting into. There are secrets she doesn’t know about piling up around her ears." - Alleana A.
