Joey Graceffa is set to make his fantasy debut with dystopian young adult novel Children of Eden...
YouTuber Joey Graceffa is gearing up to release his second book, and this one is even more magical than his 2015 autobiography In Real Life. Graceffa made the announcement in style with an official video on his YouTube page!
The announcement was prefaced by a montage of footage that spanned Graceffa's years of videography. "Once upon a time there was a boy who loved to tell stories, so he showed the world what he dreamed of" the screen read before showcasing some of the more fantastical moments of Joey's videos. The creative YouTuber battles demons, faces off against his greatest fears, and does a little bit of magic in the scenes, which included footage from his Storytellers saga as well as his "Don't Wait" music video amongst other projects.
While the montage in and of itself was exciting enough to warrant it's own film, the announcement is even more thrilling... "And now it's time for the next story" Joey pronounced before sharing the news about his impending dystopian young adult fantasy novel Children of Eden.
Children of Eden tells the story of a burnt out world and a forbidden child named Rowan. The sixteen year old protagonist was born a twin in a world that forbids families to have more than one child. Hidden by her parents in an effort to save her from death, Rowan lives a sheltered life in the confines of her home. Hungry for a taste of freedom, she escapes for a night out of her home to disastrous results...
