Gone -Michael Grant
In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.
Everyone except for the young. Tenns. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not a single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Gone, too, are the phones, internet, and television. There is no way to get help.
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 and war is imminent.
The fist in a breathtaking saga about teens battling each other and their darkest selves, Gone is a page-turning thriller that weill make you look at the world in a whole new way.
That last paragraph is no exaggeration, Gone certainly does make you look at the world in a different way, makes you think about things a bit more. And it certainly is a page turner, I could not put this book down when I was reading it, I woke up in the middle of the night and read it. I read right through the night other times. This book is amazing, and the other books that follow Hunger, and Lies, do not disappoint and stay true to the Fayz.
One warning though, I would not recommend this book to anyone who has an issue with children dying in books. This book is very real, when all adults disappear, actually anyone over the age to 15 disappear only the kids are left. This books shows the true nature of people, how we can be selfish, careless, irresponsible, and deadly in the right situations. But also how we can be leaders, care givers, and form societies even if they are completely dysfunctional.
