Eden Tracey Joseph

Description

Sixteen-year-old Ivy Farewell has never seen the phantom of Eden Woods but that hasn’t stopped her yearnings. She breaks curfew one night while her parents are asleep. Along with her best friend Margaret, she sets out to prove the legend false and to maybe get a peek at the boy who’s fooled everyone and captured her heart. When Ivy and Margaret end up lost, their only hope is in each other. When Ivy falls ill with a fever, a strange boy takes them in and tends to her. Overtaken by a new illness, affection of the heart, Ivy must find a way to free herself and Margaret from his hold on them if she ever wants to go home.

The storyline appears to be intriguing, and after reading the first three chapters I found the book to be mysterious and quite fascinating. The atmosphere for the book has been done well (in my opinion) and the author has made the readers curious to know what will happen next.
Perhaps to improve the story, the author could describe the experience of surviving within Eden Woods in a way to allow the reader to have a more in-depth understanding of the frustration and struggle the two girls suffer. Maybe by exaggerating the feeling of longing for family, or add more anger throughout the scenes. But overall, a good beginning for the story.

Hey guys! So I know I've had this story up before and I wanted to take the time to thank all of you who added the story to their reading lists, as well as thank the two girls who read it then and left comments. After an inspiring talk with someone, I've decided to give it another shot--all in this time. :)
