Origin by Jessica Khoury
My dreams are tangled around each other like plants vying for the best spot in the sun. They strangle each other in their attempt to get the better of my reason. I know which one I truly want – I’ve wanted it all my life. But I’m being overtaken by a new desire, a raging, unpredictable dream that could destroy everything I’ve worked for. (Origin, page 99)
Origin, by Jessica Khoury, is tame and wild all at the same time! I give Origin 4 books on the bookshelf!
Thoughts from Jessica:
In Origin, Pia grows in many ways, and one of the most important ways is that she matures in her self-perception. As kids, we tend to be atrociously self-centered. That’s just how kids work. Things like sacrifice and empathy are really hard concepts for kids to grasp, much less naturally possess. For Pia, these are even harder, because all her life she’s been taught not to sacrifice or empathize. She also grows a lot in what she knows about the world. Pia is severely sheltered, but when she sneaks out of Little Cam for the first time, her world is turned inside out. She discovers the world is much bigger and more complex than she ever imagined.

Pia has grown up in a secret laboratory hidden deep in the Amazon rainforest. 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.
