I was really excited to get my hands on this book. I love the concept! A woman who creates a boy. Feminist at its best. lol

Actually, it was just really nice to read a book that was totally different than an other I have read. I had an inkling where it was going, as I had participated in a discussion on books and triangle love stories, but things never are exactly as you expect.

Evening, which is an incredible name btw, is a daughter of a brilliant scientist who has done a few things to cut corners around laws and yet, has saved millions of people from deathly diseases. How far would you go to save humans from diseases? But the story goes so much deeper than that.

In comes Solo, a boy that Eve has no idea about. He has been living in the building where his mom works (plays God) and yet, she doesn't know why he is there or what he is doing. There is a definite attraction there though. But what does he want?

Then Eve's mother gives her this project to keep her busy while recovering, to create her dream guy - on a computer. Easy, right? You just input the data and he is shown on a screen. But could he be created to be real? Would she want this? What would she feel if he were real?

Okay, seriously loved this book. CANNOT WAIT to read the next book, Adam and Eve.

Summary -

And girl created boy…

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?

I'm definitely intrigued by this one; I know it's one of the buzzy books for fall. I have a list, will add it to it officially!
