Synopsis

Suddenly there are no adults, no answers. What would you do? In the blink of an eye, the world changes. The adults vanish without a trace, and those left must do all they can to survive. But everyone's idea of survival is different. Some look after themselves, some look after others, and some will do anything for power ...Even kill. For Sam and Astrid, it is a race against time as they try to solve the questions that now dominate their lives ...What is the mysterious wall that has encircled the town of Perdido Beach and trapped everyone within? Why have some kids developed strange powers? And can they defeat Caine and his gang of bullies before they turn fifteen and disappear too? It isn't until the world collapses around you that you find out what kind of person you really are. A chilling portrayal of a world with no rules. When life as you know it ends at 15, everything changes.

Michael Grant has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states of the USA, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a whole year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife, Katherine Applegate, their two children, and far too many pets.

So you're sitting in class daydreaming as usual when the teacher disappears. At first you think it's a trick but then you realise that EVERYONE over the age of 15 is GONE. What I love most about Gone is that you're not exactly sure what it is. Part Golding's Lord of the Flies, where the initial euphoria of no rules gives way to a savage dog eat dog way of life and part Lovecraftian horror where an ancient evil is controlling events to who knows what ends. The characters are well defined, being reluctant heroes with flaws that make them all too believably human, or at least part-human. Gone is a fast-paced, action-packed read which will make you hunger for more. - Sam
