I'm looking for a book about an immortal who escapes her home and meets a oy.

I read this book a few months ago. It is about this scientific lab in the middle of the Amazon. The only connection to the outside world is through supply trucks and very few people live there. The main goal is to make a person who is immortal and so far, I believe they made a teenager who either is immortal or lives a stupidly long time. She has a pet tiger i think and her mother lives with her at the facility. She is believed to be 'perfect' and convinces her tutor/friend to throw her a 16th birthday party. It happens.
She starts to wonder what outside the fence is like so one day she runs away in the middle of the night and meets a boy who is going to lead her to where he lives with his tribe.

This is as far as I got in the book and would really love to know the title so I can read it to the end.

Yours sincererly,
An angsty 13 year old girl.

Thanks for your question!

That sounds a lot like Origin, by Jessica Khoury.  It's a Young Adult book about a genetically-engineered 'perfect' girl named Pia, who sneaks out of her compound in the Amazon and meets a village boy named Eio.  Could that be it?

If not, let us know and we'll do more digging!  Thanks again.
