The jungle hides a girl who cannot die.
Pia is a result of generations of experimentation. She is immortal. Her skin cannot be scratched by even the sharpest tool. She can run for hours without slowing down or getting tired. She is, by definition, perfect. She is also the only one of her kind.
Pia and her team of creators live in the middle of a jungle. Pia is forbidden from learning anything about the world outside of her fenced-in camp. The scientists are her family, and they tell her of her destiny. When she’s old enough, they will teach her the secret of how she was created, and it will be her job to lead a team of scientists to create a whole colony of indestructible, perfect human beings.
But one day Pia escapes her compound into the jungle and meets a boy. As they fall in love, Pia starts to question her destiny and the people she once considered her family. She uncovers a terrible truth about her origin–one that will change her life forever.
Origin is a captivating read that will leave you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. Recommended for anyone who enjoys dystopian fiction and, of course, a good romance. Ages 12+.
