The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.
Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
My Review: I've been wanting to read this book for a while and never got to it until I won the ARC for Once and decided to finally read Eve. Well let me tell you, this book turned out to be better than I have expected. The beginning of the book starts with this big party going on and everyone is eating and having a good time. Eve is all extra excited because to tomorrow is graduation day for and she receives this medal from the head mistress. Eve believes its for all her hard work and for being the valedictorian, but it means something much different. While everyone is having fun there is this one girl who is standing alone. Arden is not like the other girls, she is not an orphan and she knows whats past the lake, and with that she finally leaves the school. Not believing what Arden said, Eve decides to find out the truth for herself. Breaking the rules for the first time ever, Eve leaves her room in the middle of the night and leave the grounds to go across the lake and see what's really going on in that building. What she sees scares her so bad she runs back to the school only to be caught by a teacher. This teacher however knows what is going on and instead of reporting her she helps Eve to escape. While on her own Eve finds Arden and so the two stick together. While looking for food Eve finds this bear and before getting attacked by the mother bear she is saved by this boy. Eve must rethink everything she has been told about guys. Now I will stop her and save the rest of the book for all of you to read.
