Imagine: In the blink of eye, every adult in your life suddenly disappears without a trace. No note, no goodbye, they’re just…gone. And to top it off, just as suddenly there’s no internet, no phones, and no television, so there’s no way for you to get help or figure out what happened. Well, that’s the plot for author Michael Grant’s novel, Gone. In the novel, everyone in the town of Perdido Beach over the age of 15 vanishes into thin air, which causes a great deal of confusion and disorder among the people left. “Chaotic” is best to describe what happens next; Bullies start to declare themselves leader, hunger/starvation threatens everyone, a deadly creature is on the loose and animals mutation, and not to mention the teens start to discover they are developing deadly powers. Gone is the first of a series of six novels that tell the interesting story of a terrifying new world full of mystery and action. Anyone who likes to read books about dystopian societies will definitely love Gone. Head to the Media Center or your local library to check it out today!
