Pia has grown up in a secret laboratory hidden deep in the Amazon rain forest. She was raised by a team of scientists who have created her to be the start of a new immortal race. But on the night of her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the electric fence that surrounds her sterile home—and sneaks outside the compound for the first time in her life.Woo! Amazon! Secrets! Forbidden love! Evil scientists! Yeah!
Free in the jungle, Pia meets Eio, a boy from a nearby village. Together, they embark on a race against time to discover the truth about Pia’s origin—a truth with deadly consequences that will change their lives forever.
Those were my thoughts going into this book. I mean, everybody and his second cousin is talking about this book. It's one of those Big Deal books. Oh, and I follow the author on Twitter, and she's super-sweet, and her hair is so pretty it's distracting. Clearly, this book is going to be amazing, right?!
I'm sorry to say that amazing author does not always equal amazing book. Origin was by no means horrible (look at all the people that LOVE this book), but it just wasn't my cup of tea.
