Average GBC reader rating [elpix_average_rating]

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. . . .

GBC Review by Sofia S.

Gone is an awesome book from start to finish. It is a bit like the Maze Runner due to the fact that in both books the kids are alone and are surrounded by mutant creatures but that is about it. In the book everyone over 15 suddenly disappears, and the kids of Perdido Beach are left all alone. Then kids begin to find new powers within themselves, but not all of them can control it. Caine, the leader of a boarding school tries to take over the beach, but their leader, Sam fights back. With a force field like barrier around the town it is nicknamed the FAYZ as most kids hope the adults would come back. This book is aimed for teens, and it is definitely on my read again list.
Happy Reading!
