"In the blink of an eye, everyone disappears. Gone. Except for the young.
There are teens, but not one single adult. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened.
Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else..."
My Thoughts So Far:
With eight or nine books from the library, all due at different times, I've been reading multiple books at a time; sometimes focusing on one more than the other. Right now, I'm focusing on Gone. If you don't already know, I LOVED Michael Grant's Messenger of Fear, and wanted more of his writing and characters! And what better way to do it than to borrow his entire Gone series?
I'm about 150 pages into this one, and enjoying it so far! Its stranger, different, confusing, and AWESOME! I feel like everyone, and I mean EVERYONE has read this series, but me. So it's about time that I get to it!
