Book Trailer Thursday: Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

I haven’t read too many YA sci-fi books, but the ones I’ve read I’ve enjoyed, especially if they are sci-fi light like I hear Eve and Adam is. It looks like it’s fun and fast-paced, and doesn’t the book trailer remind you of the movie Weird Science? In Eve and Adam, Evening (Eve) has the task of creating the perfect guy at her mother’s biotech company. So, I’m thinking that the perfect guy is not everything she hoped for? The story shifts POV with Eve and another boy at the biotech facility named Solo, as well as Mr. Perfect Adam. Looking forward to checking out this book!

From Goodreads:

Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate, October 2, 2012, Feiwel & Friends.

Sixteen-year-old Evening Spiker lives an affluent life in San Francisco with her mother, EmmaRose, a successful geneticist and owner of Spiker Biotech. Sure, Evening misses her father who died mysteriously, but she’s never really questioned it. Much like how she’s never stopped to think how off it is that she’s never been sick. That is, until she’s struck by a car and is exposed to extensive injuries. Injuries that seem to be healing faster than physically possible.

While recuperating in Spiker Biotech’s lush facilities, she meets Solo Plissken, a very attractive, if off-putting boy her age who spent his life at Spiker Biotech. Like Evening, he’s never questioned anything… until now. Solo drops hints to Evening that something isn’t right, and Emma-Rose may be behind it. Evening puts this out of her mind and begins her summer internship project: To simulate the creation of the perfect boy. With the help of Solo, Evening uncovers secrets so big they could change the world completely.

    I’ve been kind of iffy on this one… I was pretty excited for it and then I saw a lot of reviews that said it wasn’t what they expected so now I’m a little on the fence. I’ll probably pick it up with hesitation when it comes out because the concept looks so interesting!
    Thanks for sharing!!! 🙂

      The reviews are a bit mixed, but I’ve wanted to try something from these authors, and this looks light and fun. Hope you like it if you decide to read it 🙂

        Thanks, Lucy! I’ll definitely give it a try, but it’s nice to keep that cautiousness in the back of my mind 🙂 Your post got me excited for it again though! I don’t always agree with the majority (sometimes wildly so) so I’m not necessarily going to agree with them. I hope I like it too 🙂

    You sold me with Weird Science! I haven’t heard a ton about this one, but actually like the concept. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to read it soon!

      Yeah, this time the girl gets to create the perfect guy so that’s a fun twist on Weird Science. I probably should re-watch that sometime and see if it holds up! Glad you like the concept- it looks like a fun ride.
