Like Evening, he's never questioned anything ... until now. Solo drops hints to Evening that something isn't right, and Evening's mother 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 surprised myself with how fast I read this book. I got it done in under two days, speeding through the whole thing.
I enjoyed this book a lot. While I might not have been entirely sucked into this story as I have with other books recently, I liked the plot and the characters. All the details that if written by someone else might have come across as annoying or unimportant had instead a strangely authentic feel to them.
I felt like I was reading a story with a realistic main character who's richness did not make her unbearably snotty but achieved inn having her come across as a bit entitled, a wild best friend who contains qualities and personality traits of girls I could remember from high school, and a shut-in who rebelled against his closed-offness from the world, both with his actions and mannerisms, breaking past the stuffy and nerdiness of his home and forcing the people around him to see exactly who he is.
This book had a nice resolution and left me feeling satisfied with choosing a nice fast read.

I really enjoyed this book. They wrapped everything up nicely, and the romantic pairings were the ones I had hoped for. Very good, would read again.

Eve wakes up in a hospital after a horrifying accident. It seems certain that even if she survives, she may never fully recover. However, while she is in the hospital, fresh out of surgery to reattach her leg, her mother rushes in and takes her out of the hospital to her own "biopharmaceuticals" research facility. This is a non-stop action, edge of your seat, thriller presenting a chilling look at a very near future with its amazing potential but also its serious moral dangers.

This was actually a really good book that was very interesting the only problem was that it was a very fast read so some of the details were missed.

One of the BEST books ever!!!!!! -read it...

This is a fast-paced, suspenseful story that manages to work in a mix of ingredients that includes genetics, corporate and high tech espionage, unexpected (and expected) plot twists, and teenage relationships with each other and parents. It starts with the main character getting mauled by a car--not just broken bones mauling, mind you, but severed leg lying on the other side of the street mauling--and takes off from there. It's not terrifically deep, developed, or insightful, but it's engaging and fun.

This book was amazing, it was a well created book and I'm glad about the way it ended. When I first started reading it I was really hoping she would fall in love with him and not Adam. As she discovered perfect really isn't meant for everyone (imperfect is better than perfect consider you might not be as perfect as the other person is...and that never works out well (unless of course it does and I'm wrong) ). Anyways I couldn't stop reading, it's a good bokk that I haven't read in a long time.

This book was pretty good. It started out really stong, but then a little bit half way through, it sort of went down hill. The story got a little jumbled and didn't make that much sense. It still was a good ending though. I suggest you read it.
