Waiting on Wednesday, July 4, 2012
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that highlights the books you are most anticipating. This week's exciting soon-to-be-released novel is Origin by Jessica Khoury, due out September 4 from Razorbill.

Origin by Jessica Khoury
Pia is not like other girls- she was created as the first of an immortal race in a secret laboratory in the Amazonian jungle and has spent her entire life behind the gates of this hidden compound. On her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers that part of the fence surrounding the compound has been opened, and she leaves the sequestered life she has always known to discover what lies beyond. There, she meets a young boy from a local village, Eio, and  together they set off to uncover the truth of Pia's mysterious origin and the meaning of immortality. Jessica Khoury brings us Origin, which highlights themes of yearning for agelessness, scientific ethics, and what it means to be human.
