At first Evening thinks this happened just because her mother likes to control everything. With the help of a mysterious boy named Solo, Evening soon realizes her mother has all sorts of secrets to hide and Evening is one of them. Her mother gives Evening a project to work on - create the perfect boy. Thinking it just a game she proceeds to make her dream guy. It's only after lots of drama and some action that Evening realizes her creations, Adam, is just another of her mom's secrets.
I liked some parts of this novel. Solo, I definitely liked. Evening, not so much. I know she was just in a serious accident, but she is pretty dense most of the time. I was not a huge fan of her best friend either - another clueless girl with an even stupider boyfriend who causes all sorts of problems. Nothing super fantastic but kind of a fun read for teens who like simple sci-fi with some romance and a little mystery.
