Publisher's Summary

Twenty-five-year-old Joey Graceffa has captured the hearts of more than 8.3 million teens and young adults through his playful, sweet, and inspirational YouTube presence. Already a best-selling author with his memoir, In Real Life, Joey now presents his first novel, Children of Eden.

Rowan is a Second Child in a world where population control measures make her an outlaw marked for death. She can never go to school, make friends, or get the eye implants that will mark her as a true member of Eden. Her kaleidoscope eyes will give her away to the ruthless Center government.

Outside of Eden, Earth is poisoned and dead. All animals and most plants have been destroyed by a man-made catastrophe. Long ago the brilliant scientist Aaron al Baz saved a pocket of civilization by designing the EcoPanopticon, a massive computer program that hijacked all global technology and put it to use preserving the last vestiges of mankind. Humans will wait for thousands of years in Eden until the EcoPan heals the world.

As an illegal Second Child, Rowan has been hidden away in her family's compound for 16 years. Now, restless and desperate to see the world, she recklessly escapes for what she swears will be only one night of adventure. Though she finds an exotic world and even a friend, the night leads to tragedy. Soon Rowan becomes a renegade on the run - unleashing a chain of events that could change the world of Eden forever.

    "So unpredictability"

    This book was amazing, it was unpredictable with lots of twists.
    The end of the book left me with so many questions and feeling like there must be a 2nd. I so hope that get to make a movie out of this
    The story was amazing
    How the reader invites you in to the story really had me not want to leave and it was overall amazing and brilliant

    "Strong start, disappointing finish"

    The book will have a strong appeal with middle school readers (12-15 year olds), but the non stop challenges and crises go on just a little too long. It's obvious that the aim is to write a sequel, but the abrupt finish will disappoint many readers.

    "Beware an awful ending"

    The storyline was dystopian and interesting enough but There were definitely some cringe worthy moments, an unnecessary love triangle and a lot of repeat language, but I was enjoying it. Up until that awful ending. What a complete let down. But on the flip side the voice actor was great.

    "Love this book,but confused about the ending."

    I really love the story line of the book, but I am kind of confused about the ending of the book. I also have a lot of questions that were not answered. like was Ash fine. what happened to Lark,and how did she get out,? Did Lachlan get back to the Underground? did they really poison her? was the whole forest and deer a Vision problem, or is the center lying about it all? what happens to Rowan?

    Story
    "Disconnected"

    I liked the story concept, don't get me wrong. It was just the blandness and over detail of the story that turned me off. It seemed as though the characters were decided before they were actually written about and, therefore, they seemed to push through the plot instead of flowing with the plot. This made it hard to relate to the characters and hard to get into the story. All in all, I loved the world, but just couldn't get into it.

    "That's not aloud! !!!"

    It was such an easy book to listen to, I found myself finishing it in a single day! Amazing story line with so many unexpected turns, through out I was left wondering what was really going to happen. The characters were so real I could picture them beautifully in my mind. An extraordinarily executed book with an ended that has left me hungry for more.
