Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The day Eden met Ryan changed her world forever. Actually, not just her world. Ryan has time traveled from the future to save the world. In a few weeks, Edens best friend Connor will discover a new planet—one where human life is possible. The discovery will make him famous. It will also ruin the world as we know it. When Ryan asks Eden for help, she must choose between saving the world and saving her best friends greatest achievement. And a crush on Ryan complicates things more than she could have imagined. Because Connor is due to make the discovery after the girl he loves breaks his heart. That girl is Eden.

Grounded in a realistic teen world with fascinating sci-fi elements, After Eden is a heart-pounding love triangle thats perfect for dystopian fans looking for something new to devour.

Review:

"Douglas's debut, published earlier this year in the U.K., is a low-key teen love triangle spiked by the complication of time travel. Eden and Connor have been friends since preschool; Ryan is the new kid who shows up for 11th grade in their English seaside town. They're handsome, intelligent kids with death and loss in their histories, but no serious hangups. Ryan whispers to Eden that Connor loves her, even as Ryan is putting the moves on her. Eden dismisses Connor for the lure of the new, but Ryan's patchy grasp of common knowledge — what is pizza? who's Nelson Mandela? — raises suspicion. It takes a hundred pages to discover why: Ryan is from the future, and he's arrived to change his history. Douglas's world-building can be strange. In 100 years, students will apparently recite Shakespeare from memory but not recognize Hitler's name; indeed, though the locus of disaster lies with a boy born in the 20th century, that century is barely discussed in future classrooms. Otherwise, the plot is competently constructed and the prose enjoyable — a respectable debut. Ages 12 — up. Agent: Julia Churchill, A.M. Heath." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

The romantic appeal of Matched meets the ticking time bomb plot in Delirium in this high-stakes love story.

About the Author

A keen stargazer, one of Helen Douglas's first memories is of getting up in the middle of the night to sneak outside and watch the Perseids meteor shower. It was a telescope that she received as a birthday gift that helped inspire Eden. She lives in Cornwall with her husband and children. After Eden is her first novel.
