In one second, every adult in the world disappears. Gone. Bullies take over. Hunger threatens, and sinister creatures lurk. Animals are mutating, and some of the teenagers start to develop deadly powers. No one is sure how or what has happened, only that they will have to fight to survive in this strange new world.
GONE starts off when a few teenagers realize their teacher is missing. Soon, they figure out that every single adult is gone. Oh, yeah, there’s also this huge dome cutting the town off from the rest of the world. Plus, if you turn fifteen, you “poof” or disappear, too.
GONE is a story about a world ruled by kids with terrifying results. It is part of a series that has six total books. I would say it is a great book for ages twelve and up.
