In the blink of an eye everyone disappears Gone Except for the youngThere 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 This was a very good book about adventure mutants superheroes and just the plain old story of surviving high school only this time there are no adults to keep a check on thingsThis novel tells the story of how one day in a small Californian town everyone 15 and over mysteriously disappears But that's not all The town becomes surrounded by a strange spherical barrier no one gets in or out And stranger still the children and teenagers left behind are discovering that some of them have weird mutant powers And that snakes can fly And coyotes can talk In a world gone mad power and leadership are up for the picking In a world run by children power belongs to the bullies the sadists or the mutants So I'm going to explain the reason it got four instead of five stars Well I've spent the last few weeks reading books that are instantly gripping they throw you right into the middle of the story and build up their characters around it this book however takes time at the beginning to introduce and explore each character in a way that I feel would have been much effective if it had been integrated throughout the novel But it's not just that I have some issues with the female charactersAs a woman and a feminist I love strong females in books But the strongest female in this book was probably Diana the psychopath and even she was most notably only the girlfriend of the opposition The girls in this book are all beautiful or cute and are important only as ornaments on the arm of the leaders all of which are male there never seemed to be any discussion in this book as to whether the chosen leader would be female Also I grew increasingly annoyed by the way Sam was built up as Astrid's saviour and hero I had higher hopes for Astrid at first she was described as a genius and I thought she could be a great contribution to solving their predicament but she was actually fairly useless often needing to be rescued herself My favourite female of the book is Lana She survived alone in the desert without ever needing a guy's help unless you count her lovable dog Patrick and she braved a truck crash coyote attacks and I hope there's strength and admirable ualities coming from her character in the second installment Which by the way I am extremely looking forward to because the story is VERY good even if my rant seemed to suggest otherwise

Gone by Michael GraHappenedHunger 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 ter I hereby predict that sometime in the next year or so the next big Young Adult obsession will be with the book Gone by Michael Grant and with the subseuent books that I hope he writes uickly because I might die if I don't know the what and the why and the how and thewell EVERYTHING This is apparently the first in a series of six books I also predict that it will take off like the Harry Potter and the Twilight Series with almost as many adults reading the series as kidsFor one thing this book is creative genius I can take a guess at some of Grant's inspirations but I truly hope that my doing so doesn't take away from Grant's originality because to me this book felt 100% new and Grant is brilliant to have woven his ideas together in such a phenomenal way The story is this everyone over the age of 15 disappears one day all in the same instant After the initial panic a power struggle ensues a la Lord of the Flies But that's not all it turns out that some of the kids have developed certainlet's say uniueskills a la Heroes which help and harm in their strange adultless environment The story surprises despite having some familiarity and I simply couldn't put it down I even once tucked it under my shirt and snuck it into the ladies' room at work with me so I could continue reading Oh and there's even some teen love in there too and who doesn't love young love? No one I tell youI admit the cover art and the summary on the book jacket are a little hokey I can overlook the summary after all I thought the summaries for the Twilight series sounded ridiculous as well so I think my distaste has to do with my being in my thirties than anything else That very well may be the same for the cover art too but I do think it will hinder the book's allure for adult readers If you guys over at Harper Collins are reading this you might want to consider ditching the random people on the book jacket and instead design it as it looks without the jacket on it matte black with shiny blue title in large letters on the front But that's just my two centsWhen it comes down to it though the book jacket art is pretty irrelevant With or without it this book kicks some serious ass And you don't have to be a young adult to think so
