Coming Attraction: Eve & Adam

I came across this one recently and was immediately struck by a couple of things:

1. That's a cool freaking premise.
2. It's written by a husband and wife team, which intrigues me.
3. I'm sort of in love with this cover.

Now, I know many of you would look at the fact that Michael Grant is one of the authors, and that will be enough to put it on your lists. But I haven't read the Gone series, popular as it is. And I know many of you may look at the other name on the book and say, who?  But I actually have read a book by Katherine Applegate - a book I'd never heard of from a series I'd never heard of that I picked up on a whim when I was a teen and ended up reading multiple times (the first book of the Everworld series).

So yeah. I'm intrigued...
Eve & Adam by Katherine Applegate and Michael Grant
Amazon | Goodreads
Sci-Fi, 304 pages
Expected publication: October 2nd 2012 by 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.
