“Extraordinarily skillful pacing, which leaves the reader constantly on the verge of a new discovery.” (KLIATT)
“A tour de force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless.” (Booklist (starred review))
“If Stephen King had written Lord of the Flies, it might have been a little like this novel.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review))
In the blink of an eye.
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.See all Product Description
