Description

Tackling faith, doubt, and transformation, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman explores a boy's unraveling allegiance to an insular cult. Twelve square miles of paradise, surrounded by an eight-foot-high chain-link fence: this is Nodd, the land of the Grace. It is all seventeen-year-old Jacob knows. Beyond the fence lies the World, a wicked, terrible place, doomed to destruction. When the Archangel Zerachiel descends from Heaven, only the Grace will be spared the horrors of the Apocalypse. But something is rotten in paradise. A wolf invades Nodd, slaughtering the Grace's sheep. A new boy arrives from outside, and his scorn and disdain threaten to tarnish Jacob's contentment. Then, while patrolling the borders of Nodd, Jacob meets Lynna, a girl from the adjoining ranch, who tempts him to sample the forbidden Worldly pleasures that lie beyond the fence. Jacob's faith, his devotion, and his grip on reality are tested as his feelings for Lynna blossom into something greater and the End Days grow ever closer. Eden West is the story of two worlds, two hearts, the power of faith, and the resilience of the human spirit.

      • bioText:

        I grew up in a large family in a little house with a lot of books and paintings on the inside and a big woods on the outside. I wanted to be an artist like my mom, and I loved comics, so I decided to be a comic-book artist. After a few years of trying to draw comics I realized that I wasn't very good at drawing, so I decided to write books. It took a long time for me to figure out how to do it. I spent thirty years doing other things sign painting, printing, pineapple cutting, tire repair, graphic design, and building cabinets. Finally, at age thirty-seven, I figured out that if I wanted to write books, I had to plant my butt in a chair and write. Every day.

        About My Work:

        It worked. Since then, I've written more than twenty-five novels, mostly for teens and younger readers. My biggest and most exciting project was The Klaatu Diskos, a time-travel trilogy that took more than a decade to write. When I started writing The Klaatu Diskos, I didn't know how long it was going to be, how hard it would be, or how many years it would take. But if I had to do it over again — I wouldn't change a thing. The final book in the trilogy, The Klaatu Terminus, was published in April 2014.

        Three Things You Might Not Know About Me:

        1. I am very disciplined; I take at least two naps every day, but never more than four.
        2. My dog's favorite thing in the world is to watch the toilet flush.
        3. I wrote my first book at age eight. It was called My Autobiogrphy. It was a very short book.
