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. . . .
“A potent mix of action and thoughtfulness—centered around good and evil, courage and cowardice—renders this a tour de force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless.” —ALA Booklist (starred review)

I love these books!!
It has a mix of sci-fi, fantasy, and semi-fiction. As a dystopian reader, I would never think I would like these books but I absolutely LOVED IT. I actually got this as I book-gift (I’m a bookworm) but never recommended it so I never thought I would actually like it. But sure enough, this book made it to my top 10 books list.
So anyway, the only thing for all the people questioning reading it, it has many parts where gore and blood and all that is involved so if you are a sensitive reader, this may not be your type. (I could handle it, though, as a preteen.)
Wow just wow
I have read all of these books they are amazing read all the way through you won’t regret it. It’s probably the greatest book I’ve ever read. Well book series not this one in particular. Book 5 was the best one.
This is the best book series ever! The ending is a little tearful but still good.
