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. (Summary from Goodreads)

Whoa! What a teaser! I wan't sure if I wanted to read this one before even after reading the summary on so many Waiting on Wednesdays but after watching this it is going right on my TBR list!! What an awesome trailer Penguin!

Elvie Nara was doing just fine in the year 2071. She had a great best friend, a dad she adored, and bright future working on the Ares Project on Mars. But then she had to get involved with sweet, gorgeous, dumb-as-a-brick Cole--and now she's pregnant.
Getting shipped off to the Hanover School for Expecting Teen Mothers was not how Elvie imagined spending her junior year, but she can go with the flow. That is, until a team of hot commandos hijacks the ship--and one of them turns out to be Cole. She hasn't seen him since she told him she's pregnant, and now he's bursting into her new home to tell her that her teachers are aliens and want to use her new home to repopulate their species? Nice try, buddy. You could have just called.
So fine, finding a way off this ship is priority number one, but first Elvie has to figure out how Cole ended up as a commando, work together with her arch-nemesis, and figure out if she even wants to be a mother--assuming they get back to Earth in one piece. (Summary from Goodreads)

OMG! This trailer makes me giggle because it starts out seeming like a normal teenager is pregnant story, then suddenly the school is being attacked by commandos. Now I'm curious...this is a TBR for sure! Oh--and wait for the last line--laughed out loud! ;)
