On My Wishlist is: Eve and Adam by Katherine Applegate

Blurb from Amazon:
In the beginning, there was an apple –
And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker’s head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal.
Just when Eve thinks she will die – not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy.
Using an amazingly detailed simulation, Eve starts building a boy from the ground up. Eve is creating Adam. And he will be just perfect . . . won’t he?

Doesn’t it sound amazing? It is the reversal of the God creating Adam. It is a woman who creates Adam in her image. The feminist in me is screaming “This better be a great book because it is tackling an interesting issue.” What characteristics would a female create in a man given the opportunity? I’m looking forward to its release.
