The Origin Olympics Have Begun!

As you can see, the Games are OPEN! But what does that mean? Aren't the Olympics over and all the hunks went home?

Not really, and NO.

Enter the host of these Games Jessica Khoury, author of the highly anticipated Origin, out September 4, 2012. Here's the synopsis (and gorgeous, rad cover):

Pia has grown up in a secret laboratory hidden deep in the Amazon rain forest. She was raised by a team of scientists who have created her to be the start of a new immortal race. But on the night of her seventeenth birthday, Pia discovers a hole in the electric fence that surrounds her sterile home—and sneaks outside the compound for the first time in her life.
Free in the jungle, Pia meets Eio, a boy from a nearby village. Together, they embark on a race against time to discover the truth about Pia’s origin—a truth with deadly consequences that will change their lives forever.
Origin is a beautifully told, shocking new way to look at an age-old desire: to live forever, no matter the cost. This is a supremely compelling debut novel that blends the awakening romance of Matched with the mystery and jungle conspiracy of Lost. (Via Goodreads)

Sounds AMAZING, right? (P.S. I want this book bad, like a cat wants a string bad.) To top of all the awesomeness, Jessica has put together one of the coolest contests ever:

See, the Olympics aren't over. And the hot Olympians? The synopsis mentions a boy named Eio, and you know he's going to be all sorts of delicious.
