Review: After Eden by Helen Douglas

Eden Anfield loves puzzles, so when mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school she's hooked. On the face of it, he's a typical American teenager. So why doesn't he recognise pizza? And how come he hasn't heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden the most, however, is the interest he's taking in her.

As Eden starts to fall in love with Ryan, she begins to unravel his secret. Her breakthrough comes one rainy afternoon when she stumbles across a book in Ryan's bedroom - a biography of her best friend - written over fifty years in the future. Confronting Ryan, she discovers that he is there with one unbelievably important purpose ... and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.

My thoughts
A really sweet love story and a nice UK YA novel which is easy to read and nice to follow.

I must admit I don't have huge amounts to say about this book. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it because I did and happily read it in a matter of hours. I liked the main characters and enjoyed seeing how the love story unfolded it and loved the time travel element of the story. It's certainly quite a soft love story which is really sweet and a bit different from other things I've read of later

Definitely worth a look.

I do like the look of this, but a little worried that you don't have much to say about it! Will keep an eye out for it though :)
