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 . . .
Michael Grant's Gone has been praised for its compelling storytelling, multidimensional characters, and multiple points of view.

"Narrator Kyle McCarley deftly defines each character's voice in this harrowing dystopian novel. Fourteen-year-old Sam and his friends are trying to survive after everyone over the age of 14 mysteriously vanishes from the world. Their situation becomes dire when power struggles emerge among leaders, and some of the kids discover magical powers that soon make them targets for bullies. While McCarley's dialogue creatively reflects each character as he or she faces danger and uncertainty, his delivery of narrative is slightly flat at times. Still, listeners will be entranced by this alternative world in which the good side of humanity battles against the terrifying darkness that surfaces as kids are left to form their own society.
