The Fountain of Youth. The Holy Grail. It seems like we are always on the quest for immortality. But what if scientists had found the answer in a simple flower found deep in the rainforest? In Origin by Jessica Khoury, they have – but at what cost?
Pia is an immortal, the first of her kind. Bred through several generations at a secret scientific facility called Little Cam, she is perfect – at least that is what she has always been told. But her secret comes with many costs, one of which is that she has never left the secret lab that she calls home. She has never seen the world, never played with children, never learned history.
