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.

"[Gone] will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless." (Booklist)
Everytime the narrator said the word, "said" I cringed. It took away from the story which in of itself is great. Terrible narration.
7 Read series but was hoping for better narrator because the story is so good.
mindset of children
This is a good, if immature, story. But the narration is UNBEARABLE! Everytime Mr. McCarley said; "Said". I cringed.
in general the book was amazing. However the narrator or voice reading the book Accent on said drove me insane.
it would seem there's no such thing as new ideas, however this is a beautiful rendition of yet another version of The Lord of the Flies we're going to dash it was a little Harry Potter and a little bit of The Hunger Games which when you come to think about it is again just different versions of Lord of the Flies
