Review: Gone by Michael Grant

In a world where everyone over the age of fifteen suddenly vanishes without a trace and the kids are now in control of the town and their own survival, somehow the story manages to be rubbish. I really didn’t expect this one to go wrong. The whole thing was right up my alley: a whole bunch of kids suddenly have the run of the land after every older teen & adult vanishes. They also start to discover that some of them have strange new powers like shooting fire out of their hands or super-healing abilities. It’s survivalist, it’s paranormal, it’s Lord of the Flies meets Heroes but it sucked.
