In the blink of an eye.
Everyone except for the young. Teens. 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.
Gone is a journey into a world where all of the sudden no one over the age of 15 is around. They blink out before everyones eyes, and no one knows where they went, why or how. Food is scarce, kids are developing powers that are anything from teleporting to fire starting.
There are many lead characters, 14 year old’s Sam, Quinn, Lana, Edilio & Astrid. Astrid’s younger brother Little Pete who has autism so severe he can barely communicate. And the bullies ranging from Drake to Howard.
I had to put the book down a few times because it was extremly intense, plus it’s well over 500 pages. Another reviewer said this book is like Lord of the Flies meets Stephen King and I totally have to agree. Worth the read, though except it to take you awhile to complete. Then go pick up Hunger, the second book in the series.
