    Sophie Crue lives with her father & stepmother and only gets

    Sophie Crue lives with her father & stepmother and only gets to see her mother on rare occasions.  Her mother is kept very busy
    working on an island off of Guam doing top-secret research regarding mental diseases.  Since Sophie has never been allowed to
    set food on Skin Island, she’s not entirely sure what it is that her mother does, except for what she’s been told all her life.  Until one
    day, when everything changes.  She gets an urgent e-mail from her mother requesting her help with an emergency on the Island.    
    Sophie immediately travels back to her hometown, enlists the help of her childhood friend, and heads to the mysterious Skin Island.  
    Soon upon arriving, Sophie realizes things aren’t quite right and what she’s been led to believe all her life isn’t true in so many ways.  
    Things are DEFINITELY not what they seem regarding Skin Island.

    This book is filled with fast-paced adventure almost from the beginning.  The majority of the book actually covers about a 48-hour
    time period, so there’s a lot of action and excitement along the way.  Vitro raises some really great moral and ethical questions and
    it’s interesting to read about the different characters’ struggles and how they deal with these scenarios.  This story is filled with
    courage, the value of human life, and what it means to truly care for somebody.  Repeatedly, I felt like I figured out exactly what was
    going on, but then there was a new twist each time!  This was a really fun, entertaining book to read while at the same time being a
    really great thought-provoking book regarding human life.    

    (I received an advance digital copy from Penguin First to Read in exchange for my honest opinion and review.)

    Decent

    Vitro was an interesting take on manipulating people through science. It was quite original and although the ending was somewhat predictable, I would still recommend it.

    Vitro is not a sequel to Origin, but they do occur in the same world setting. This story is action-packed but to the point that you don't always empathize with the characters because you don't really have a chance to know them. The beginning was a bit dull, the middle a bit disorganized, but the ending was well done. The author doesn't really explain how all of the characters arrived at their current situation which is a bit irritating given that the main character traveled half the world and yet she's a teenager. It's a good read, but not a great read. Origin was better, but if you read that one you should still probably check out Vitro.

    Ok

    I would say it is alright. The plot outline was out of order. For example the beginning was less entertaining then the other parts. I think personally that this book wss badly organized.
