Equal parts fascinating and infuriating. It's a vast riddle enveloped in the trauma of the apocalypse. Grant has created a vast cast of characters to drive his plot, but not so many that they lack fleshing out. The infuriating part was the subplot of the coyotes. They feel exceptionally out of place in this fabricated world. All the humans have a vast array of powers - yet the coyotes evolved (more or less) uniformly. It felt as though Grant had two story ideas that were "close enough" that he threw them together and said "good enough." ( )

Hey! It's the kids' version of Under the Dome ... But with powers.

Whatever. ( )

Good idea, but I didn't like the writing. There were too many characters, and I didn't feel like any of them were very well developed. The whole abandoned babies thing really bothered me, too. I just did not like this book at all. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061448788, Paperback)

In the blink of an eye.

Everyone disappears.


Everyone except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not a single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Gone, too, are the phones, internet, and television. There is no way to get help.

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 and war is imminent.

The first in a breathtaking saga about teens battling each other and their darkest selves, gone is a page-turning thriller that will make you look at the world in a whole new way.
