At first, this story seems reminiscent of Stephen King's The Dome. A town is suddenly cut off from the rest of the world by a mysterious dome-shaped barrier that cuts through the landscape and shocks when touched. However, this is where the similarities end.

In Gone, everybody over the age of fifteen disappears, leaving the children inside the dome (or what will come to be known as the FAYZ) to cope for themselves. In a Lord of the Flies type scenario, cliques begin to form. One side, ruled by the town bullies, is cruel. The other side, humane. Worse, some of the kids develop supernatural powers, and the animals begin to mutate in ways that make them more dangerous.

If you liked The Dome or Lord of the Flies, you will love Gone. As thrilling as either, and more enjoyable than both, Gone will linger i your mind long after you are done reading, leaving you craving to learn more, more, more about life in the FAYZ. Michael Grant is an awesome author and I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series!

As a middle school teacher I read a lot of young adult and teen fiction. This novel (series) is a MUST HAVE! A group of kids (all under the age of 15) suddenly find themselves isolated in their town without any adults. They must strive to not only figure out how to get their parents back, but to create their own culture in the meantime. It is not only exciting, but also a statement on human nature and society as a whole. Great book. I am on my way to the second in the series!

It is written wonderfully. I never would have thought of a plot like that ever.
There were a lot of twists such as what or who caused the FAYZ and that Sam
would have had a twin brother. I love the characters like Sam who wasn't even
a popular boy. Astrid the genius. Quinn, Sam's best friend, you gotta love Petey,
I would want to see a picture of him on the cover. Caine, who wouldn't love a villain.
Diana is the person I don't get. She laughs at Caine but still loves him, huh?
And did you notice a person I didn't mention but helped Sam and the crew out?
You gotta love Edilio! He is the most awesome character, you gotta admit.
He says a lot of things in spanish and always stays behind Sam. He doesn't care
whether or not the attention is on him. You gotta love him. I recommend this book
to anyone.!

"Synopsis" by ,
Sixteen-year-old Mia Kish's small town of Fenton, Colorado is known for three things: being home to the world's tallest sycamore tree, the national chicken-thigh-eating contest and one of the ritziest boarding schools in the country, Westbrook Academy. But when emergency sirens start blaring and Westbrook is put on lockdown, quarantined and surrounded by soldiers who shoot first and ask questions later, Mia realizes she's only just beginning to discover what makes Fenton special.

And the answer is behind the wall of the Cave, aka Fenton Electronics, of which her father is the Director. Mia's dad has always been secretive about his work, allowing only that he's working for the government. But unless Mia's willing to let the whole town succumb to a strange illness that ages people years in a matter of hours, the end result death, she's got to break quarantine, escape the school grounds and outsmart armed soldiers to uncover the truth.

"Synopsis" by , 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.
