Waiting on Wednesday: Origin by Jessica Khoury

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Title: Origin
Author: Jessica Khoury
Release Date: Sept. 4, 2012
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.

I was already excited for this book but since I've been doing the #OriginOlympics I've gotten to the point where I'm dying for the book. :o)
