Staff Reviews


If you can’t get enough of all these dystopian books coming out, Gone is
a must-read.  In this parallel world of Earth, everyone ages fifteen
and up disappears.  Poof.  Just like that, they’re gone.  Suddenly, all
authority figures are out of the picture- parents, teachers, cops, etc-
and chaos reigns.  Sam, the main protagonist, bands together with his
best friend, Quinn, and Astrid “the Genius” to find their families, but
everyone’s gone except for Astrid’s little brother, Pete.  They soon
realize there’s an unbreakable barrier around town, so no one can escape
the fate that awaits all those turning fifteen: vanishing from the
town.  Sam gets desperate as his fifteenth birthday draws closer and
closer…can he be the first to escape?  (Psst- have you already started
the Gone series?  The fourth book, Plague, just came out!)

Description


The first in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant's breathtaking dystopian sci-fi saga, Gone is a page-turning thriller that invokes the classic The Lord of the Flies along with the horror of Stephen King.

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. . . .

Michael Grant's Gone has been praised for its compelling storytelling, multidimensional characters, and multiple points of view.
