Waiting on Wednesday #40: “Origin” by Jessica Khoury

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting the release of:

Origin

by Jessica Khoury

Expected publication: September 4th 2012 by Razorbill

Description from Goodreads:
An electrifying action-romance that’s as thoughtful as it is tragicPia 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.

Add it to your to-read shelf on Goodreads.

I’ve had my eye on this one for a while now. It seems as though it’ll be a great read. I did enjoy Matched (I haven’t read Crossed yet, so I haven’t yet dealt with the, what appears to be, frustrating sequel); hearing that this is being pitched as Matched with the mystery/conspiracy of Lost makes me incredibly interested.

What book are you waiting on?
