Author: Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

Publication Date: October 2nd 2012
Synopsis (from goodreads):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'm so glad Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate teamed up to finally write a book together, That outcome was fantastic.
This is a great young- adult fiction book full with tons of adventure with a twist of science fiction mixed in.
"I want you, Evening, to design the perfect boy."
The first thing that got my attention about this book was obviously the cover. I mean look at that beauty. I was first a bit hesitant to read the book because i had heard people compare it to the Adoration of Jenna Fox, which i was not a huge fan of. But once i started reading this book i couldn't stop.
This wonderful Husband and Wife duo writing skills made this book very easy to read. It was descriptive but not to descriptive and it was very clear. They have that type of writing that just makes the readers keep reading. The writing did not bore me but was not to complex either.This book is very memorable, I mean you really can't forget a book with this unique of a storyline. It was one of those books that does not really have those dull moments that aren't very interesting to you. This book kept me interesting every single word. I also liked this book becuase there was also a sense of humor in it which i always love.
I also really like the characters in this book too. I thought Evening's mother was very well developed and was made into that perfect villian we all love. I have to say i was attracted to
Solo. He wasn't like hot, handsome, six pack, and i kind of liked that for a change. There is something about him that just kind of draws you in. And the main character, Evening, was a unique heroine, and i liked that. She was interesting becuase she was opininated, stubborn, just like her mother, but she was also a very heartfelt, loving character, who you could tell from the begining was one of the good ones.
The whole plot of the story was very well executed. It was very fast paced which i always love in a book. I have to say though i think they ending was a little rushed, but besides that i really don't have and cold feedback to say about this book. I would recomend this book to everyone, I don't really like science fiction and genres close to that, but i thoroughly enjoyed this book.
