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)Read the entire series:GoneHungerLiesPlagueFearLightMonsterVillainHero

"Great plot and diverse characters. Has an intense plot. Great for fans of physiological thrillers. Not great if you don't want to read the r-slur every 10 pages. Also ed , sewerslide ,VERY graphic descriptions of violence , and other intense themes play a pretty heavy roll in the book. Not a must read but addicting once you start. "
"I just wanna clear some stuff up for people thinking about reading it. 1. This is not a dystopia. I don't know if people know what it is, but it does not take place in the future, it's science fiction. 2. This covers some f*cked up topic, look up trigger warnings if you want to know specificalalities. 3. There is 9 books in the series. 6 main books, 3 after a time skip. 4. I highly recommend these books, I know there are a lot of mixed reviews, but I swear to you this might mess up your mind but you'll quickly forget about all that because of how amazing it is. "
"I am re-reading Gone which is the only book in the series I have read so far. I read it during middle school and I can't believe I didn't cry when Anne disapeared. It was so sad and so traumatizing for everyone at the beach. Especially Sam 😢 Also Quinn is such a bad friend. Also not to mention racist 🙄 Edilio is my favorite character so far. Don't remember a lot of character from when I first read it. Can't wait to continue the series!"
