Book blurb (from goodreads):
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.

To be honest, the cover caught my eye the first time I saw it, but not necessarily in a good way. But now it's grown on me, and that blurb? Sounds fascinating. I'm really looking forward to learning about this supposedly immortal race. Fortunately, I don't have to wait long because it releases next week. Woo!
Happy Wednesday, guys ♥
