Eve & Adam 
by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate

"After a few minutes of hesitation, I click "hands". I don't know why. I tell myself it's because opposable thumbs are so important to Homo sapiens. Tool use and all that. It sounds profound in my head. The face? That's just cosmetics, really. Hands, though, well, hands do things. Hands create." pg. 108-109

Goodreads Info: And girl created boy…

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?
