Praise for Vitro:

“With Vitro, Khoury has created something truly magnificent and unsettling. This story haunted me long after its final page.” – Marie Lu, New York Times Bestselling author of the Legend Trilogy

“Khoury has created a violent, thought-provoking tale that grabs the reader by the throat and doesn’t let go.” – Booklist

“With its intriguing blend of science fiction and mystery-island adventure story, this novel offers a multitude of heart-racing fun.” –BCCB

“Khoury’s prose is crisp and her primary characters compelling. The scientific mystery…is fascinating and serves as a believable critique of the dangers of scientific research motivated by profit.” –PW

“With vivid descriptions dripping with tropical heat and courageous characters who find themselves in the midst of mad scientists and dark conspiracies, Vitro is an exciting, action-packed tale that left me breathless!” —Morgan Rhodes, New York Times Bestselling author of Falling Kingdoms

“…the pace is fast and action driven. Teens will find this a quick read and will enjoy the references to Khoury’s popular debut novel Origin.” – VOYA

“Origin author Khoury has created a novel that addresses questions about how far experimentation can ethically go and at what point experimental subjects become more human than their creators. Fast-paced chapters…keep readers in suspense until the satisfying conclusion. In this refreshing offering, Khoury follows in the footsteps of sci-fi giants Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, and Anne McCaffrey.” –SLJ

“Well-drawn characters, heart-pounding action, and terrifying technology, VITRO is what science fiction is all about. Jessica Khoury lulls you into a false sense of security with her beautiful writing and vivid descriptions before—BAM!—dropping you into the middle of a nightmare. You’ll be blown away by what she has in store for you on Skin Island.” –Jessica Brody, bestselling author of The Unremembered Trilogy
“This book stressed me out in the best way possible! Khoury fills her plot with raw danger and suspense, leaving me breathless more than once!” –Anna Banks, New York Times Bestselling author of The Syrena Legacy Series
