Gone by Michael Grant 558 pages 9780061448768
This is the first of a popular series by Michael Grant. The premise: Everyone over the age of fourteen disappears from a small California town. How end of the world is that? Rivalries erupt between the townies, the students from a very strange, very special, very private school and the kids who have "Powers". The rivalries escalate and become very bloody- because some of the "baddies" have twisted special "Powers". Grant creates a world, okay, a somewhat twisted world with kids trying to cope without adults and weird plagues, creatures, etc. thrown at them.I recommend starting this book on a Friday night or Saturday morning, because once you start it, you won't want to put it down for long.
