A while ago I received an email from HarperCollins about one of their upcoming releases, Dark Eden by Patrick Carmen (releases Nov. 1st). It came with a book trailer which I showed my Young Adult Lit class. It was unanimously decided that I should request an ARC because so many students in that class want to read it after watching the trailer.
What about you? Does the trailer make you want to read Dark Eden?
Summary (From Goodreads):
Fifteen-year-old Will Besting is sent by his doctor to Fort Eden, an institution meant to help patients suffering from crippling phobias. Once there, Will and six other teenagers take turns in mysterious fear chambers and confront their worst nightmares—with the help of the group facilitator, Rainsford, an enigmatic guide. When the patients emerge from the chamber, they feel emboldened by the previous night’s experiences. But each person soon discovers strange, unexplained aches and pains. . . . What is really happening to the seven teens trapped in this dark Eden?
Patrick Carman’s Dark Eden is a provocative exploration of fear, betrayal, memory, and— ultimately—immortality.
