Gone by Michael Grant Review

goneGone by Michael Grant
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pub. Date: July 1st 2008
Pages: 558 pages
Age Level: Young Adult
Obtained: Bought for Nook

In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.

Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. 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:

Okie I have to admit that every time that I walked in the library this book always caught my attention but I just didn't want to get it because the length always intimidated me. Then one day I was looking at the on sale section on the Nook website and bought it. I'm honestly glad that I did! I mean what would you do if suddenly everyone over the age of 15 disappeared? It's pretty much up to Sam to help put everyone to peace but with the coates kids trying to take over, it makes it a lot more difficult. This book had a little bit of everything. Even in between all this mess it had romance, the strength of family and how friendship could be affected by jealousy. It was a bit slow but after the first couple of chapters I was hooked. I can not wait to get my hands on Hunger, which I might go get at the library later! I give this one 3.5 out of 5 paws
