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. Indeed, her kaleidoscopic eyes may very well 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 sixteen years. Now, 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.
The first novel from YouTube superstar Joey Graceffa, Children of Eden is a thrilling and completely absorbing new book from one of social media’s brightest young storytellers.

Awesome and now I think my friends are gonna be like this 😐🙄
Hi so on Christmas my aunt got me this but I was reading another book ( Shadowhunters immortal instruments ) so when I fished that book my mum told to read a book I got on my birthday witch is like a week or two weeks after Christmas then my mum said “ you know you can read to books at the same time right” then I started reading this book and I got soo hooked onto it and I kinda feel sorry for her dad but he tried to kill her and I kinda forgot about the other book so when I finish this book I’m going to finish the other book and then read the second book of shadow hunters then read elites of eden
P.S my class will be like 😐🙄😒 and they sometimes get annoyed by me talking about me talking about books soo much
This booked was absolutely incredible! I feel like Rowan is my friend and I feel so much sympathy for her. Other then the annoying cliff hanger JOEY it was the best. Waiting for Elites to come out!
I started reading Children of Eden because my tween daughter is such a fan of his YouTube channel and started reading it. I do this with all my kids as it keeps me in touch with their interests and gives us stuff to talk about. I wasn't expecting to be hooked on a story for teens but hooked I became! I read A LOT and I found this book to be well written with characters that draw you into their lives and struggles. My only disappointment was how the story ended. It's like the story wasn't concluded. There were many unanswered questions regarding the characters such as what happened to Lark, Ash and Lachlan. I hope this is just the first book in a series regarding this story but this first book of the story was unfinished which made it dissatisfying which is a shame.
