Waiting on Wednesday: Origin by Jessica Khoury

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.

Origin by Jessica Khoury
Publisher: Razorbill
Pub Date: September 4, 2012
Pages: 372


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.

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.

Why I am Waiting:
Okay this one sounds super awesome and totally different from anything I have really read before. I have been obsessed a little bit over the Penguin Breathless reads, which I can't wait to read them all, and this one sounds awesome. I really can not wait to read it. =] Also this one comes out in less than a week so I am of course getting even more excited. Can't wait.

Link me up in the comments to your WoW pick. =]

Thanks for visiting and Happy Reading.
