The Gone series has been out for a while so most of you may have already read these books, but I heard so many young boys talking about these books I knew I had to make time to read them just to know what all the fuss was about. I wasn’t disappointed.
The first book, titled Gone, starts with every person over the age of fourteen disappearing—“poofing” in a blink of an eye. Without adult decision to guide them, these kids have to figure out how to survive in a bubble they can’t escape. The story has so many surprising twists and turns I’m very excited about picking up the next novel in the series. It’s told in third person through many different points of view, which isn’t all that common for non-fantasy novels, but it works here.
