Eve & Adam - Michael  Grant, Katherine Applegate Eve and Adam was a fun, fast-paced read that kept me flipping the pages. It was one part Adoration of Jenna Fox, one part Mannequin. Eve was a spirited heroine, her mother a great Mommy Dearest-meets-Real Housewives of Silicon Valley villainess.Source: eARC from NetGalley in exchange for possible review.Solo and Eve band together to find out what the conniving grown-ups are hiding from them, outwit the baddies, and stay alive. The book uses multiple POVs, first switching between Eve and Solo's, then adding in that of Adam, who is Eve's perfect cyborg creation. There's an entertaining but unconnected subplot involving Eve's friend Aislin, who has very unfortunate taste in guys.Eve and Adam was a lot of fun -- a light sci-fi read that's heavier on the "fi" than the "sci" -- one of those books that reads like a movie treatment. Eve and Adam is the perfect choice for readers who like a fast-moving, action packed book -- fans of books like James Patterson's Maximum Ride series will probably also love this one.Read more on my blog, YA Romantics!
