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.

    "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.

    "wow surprisingly great"

    It may sound rude (I don't mean it to), but after reading several youtubers' books, I can't believe how great this book is and what a great writer Joey is.
    I'm not usually a fan of YA fiction, but I do a love a good dystopian novel, so the reviews intrigued me. From the first few chapters I was hooked and was compelled to know what happened next. The environment is original and the descriptions are imaginative and beautiful. Whether he had help or not, Joey created a wonderful gripping story and I am looking forward to the sequel. The only question now is, when are audible uploading "The Elites Of Eden"?

    "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?

    "Had potential, but missed the mark"

    I really wanted to like this book...it had all the potential to be a really awesome dystopian novel. It has a really interesting plot, but isn't delivered well and doesn't quite hit the mark. The first half of the book dragged on and was hard to stick with. Although there were plenty of opportunities at the beginning to develop the characters this did not happen, therefore the characters and their relationships were rushed and unbelievable. It wasn't for me, personally, and I don't have much interest in reading the sequel.

    "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.

    "AMAZING!!"
    Would you listen to Children of Eden again? Why?

    Yes!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The amount of detail made me feel as though I was a part of the story.
    The world Joey has created makes you question just how far off this we are from a place like this.
    The characters have so much personality you feel as though you personally know them.


    Have you listened to any of Sarah Grayson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first experience listening with Audible. Sarah Grayson does an amazing job bringing the characters to life!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!! This book leaves you wanting more and keeps you guessing what will happen next!
    I have never been one to enjoy reading a book, but I love listening to the stories!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to see more out of this series, Joey is a fantastic story teller. The world he has created is so fascinating, It completely engulfs you into the world of Eden.
