Gone- Michael Grant

Summary: from amazon

In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.

Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. 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...

Okay for starters this book was terribly LONG. I mean it wasn't a bad book... it was just really long, almost TOO long. Besides this fact I thought this was a decent book. It was definitely original in the respect that I don't think I have read anything like it before.

I found Michael Grant's take on this very interesting. He kept me thinking the whole time about what was going to happen next. I also thought that he made his characters very well, each of them had a different story on what was happening to them during events. I absolutely loved how he used a couple characters point of view on events than just the main characters.
Overall, this was a interesting and unique book. I cannot wait for its sequel to come out called "Hunger".
