Gone by Michael Grant

 
Gone by Michael Grant
book- 5/5 stars
cover- 5/5 stars
Dystopian/science fiction

In the blink of an eye.

Everyone disappears.

Gone.

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.

The first in a breathtaking saga about teens battling each other and their darkest selves, gone is a page-turning thriller that will make you look at the world in a whole new way.

Yes readers, here is another dystopian book! I love dystopian books which is one of the reasons I picked up this book. I ended up really enjoying it. It has suspense, action, adventure, a little romance, and a lot of weird stuff!!

Everyone in this book is fourteen or younger. Maybe you were like me and thought the characters were younger than you, so they wouldn't relate to you.  This statement is totally untrue. The thing about having no adults anywhere is that people grow up fast, so their age isn't a problem.

The book is in third person, but it does switch between different characters' stories. The stories eventually come together. The story really hooks you from the beginning. There is not a slow beginning at all. The mystery and suspense had me flipping pages as fast as I could. One thing I also enjoyed was the characters had a sense of humor. It could have been a very serious and dark book, but the characters keep it from being so dark with little funny remarks through out the book.

The main characters are Sam Temple and his friend, that just so happens to be a petty girl, Astrid. Most of the story is about his journey through this new world that comes to be known as FAYZ.

You should definitely read this book to find out what happens to Sam, Astrid, and the FAYZ.
