What if...every person over the age of 14 was simply...

...GONE?

'Gone' is the gripping first novel in a six-book series from HarperTeen in which everyone over the age of fourteen disappears in a flash.

Something bizarre has happened in the town of San Perdido. In a flash, everyone over the age of fourteen has disappeared. Poof. Gone. A strange impenetrable force field encircles the town, and as the stranded kids struggle to survive on their own, they discover that some of them are developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. And unfortunately, not all the kids with these new-found powers are good…

'Gone' is the new book by author Michael Grant, cocreator and coauthor of the science fiction publishing phenomenon 'Animorphs' and the 'Everworld' series.

“This intense, marvelously plotted, paced, and characterized story will immediately garner comparisons to Lord of the Flies, or even the long-playing world shifts of Stephen King, with just a dash of X-Men for good measure. A potent mix of action and thoughtfulness—centered around good and evil, courage and cowardice—renders this a tour-de-force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless. Grant’s novel is presumably the first in a series, and while many will want to scream when they find out the end is not the end, they’ll be glad there’s more in store.”
