Title: Origin
Author: Jessica Khoury
Genre: YA fiction, scifi

Pia is special, unique, and perfect. She is the result of 5 generations of genetic engineering that has rendered her immortal. Pia lives in the Amazon rainforest in an enclosed compound run by an organization known as Corpus. Pia has never left this compound and the lead scientist, Uncle Paolo, makes sure her knowledge of the outside world is very limited- Pia excels at science but has never seen a world map, never read great works of literature, or stepped outside the Corpus compound. Pia is satisfied with her life and the rules until her 17th birthday. Like all teenage girls she yearns for more freedom, so one day she figures out how to sneak out of the compound. In her first foray into the jungle, she meets Eio, the Ai'oans and her life is changed forever (literally).
