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.

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?

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.
