The first in New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant's breathtaking dystopian sci-fi saga, Gone is a page-turning thriller that invokes the classic The Lord of the Flies along with the horror of Stephen King.
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. . . .
Michael Grant's Gone has been praised for its compelling storytelling, multidimensional characters, and multiple points of view.

This is such a great book I sampled this but it’s such a shame that you have to pay for the books we all really need more books for free!
Read the whole series after my teenage son started reading it and wouldn't shut up about it. Was so good that we then passed the books on to my mum, then my aunt, then her granddaughter lol. Definitely worth the 5 stars
Best Book I've read this Year
This book is amazing I have read the first 3 and I am in the process of buying the fourth but let me just say the only criticism I have is I need more Sam and Astrid heartfelt and caring moments.
