Gone #1: Gone

More jolt than stepping barefoot on a livewire. With mutants crouching in the shadows. No-holds-barred horror fantasy a la Stephen King. One day, they’re suddenly gone. All the adults – and all the answers. In the blink of an eye, the old world disappears. Now the kids of Perdido Beach must survive on their own. But what is the mysterious wall that has encircled the town? Why have some kids developed freaky powers? Total freedom isn’t going to be a joyride. Terrible events are about to unfold…

“A driving, torrential narrative that never lets up. This is great fiction. I love this book.” Stephen King
