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.
Origin is a beautifully told, shocking new way to look at an age-old desire: to live forever, no matter the cost. This is a supremely compelling debut novel that blends the awakening romance of Matched with the mystery and jungle conspiracy of Lost.
REVIEW- I read and devoured this book in just a few short days on vacation. It's the type of book I've been waiting for- a good science fiction that isn't a hardcore dystopian. I loved the main character and the science behind the story. There's great mystery, GORGEOUS writing, and the setting in the jungle is so lively and beautiful that it drew me in right away. I'm a sucker for a good plot and characters, but the writing is always what pulls me in to a story and makes me fall in love. This one is great! AND the girl has a pet Panther. Seriously? That's amazing. Pick this one up in September from Razorbill/Penguin.
