Summary from Goodreads;
From the co-creator of the bestselling "Animorphs" comes a gripping new series in which everyone disappears in an flash on their 14th birthday. It's a terrifying new world, and time is running out. 
4.5 stars, recommend it.
What would you do if all the people under the age of fifteen just disappeared?
Why, oh why haven't I read this before? I should have listened to everyone and bought it when it came out, but no.

Where should I start? Well the plot was fantastic. It got straight into the point from the first pages. I loved the characters, even though I wish that in the next books in the series, Grant will introduce the extra characters a bit more. I really like how Michael wrote this book in a way where you can experience what each character is feeling and doing. I have to admit I felt like some parts were a bit slow and repeated from before. Overall though, I felt a tad like TheBookTuber, who loves these books. He was one of the reasons I picked up this series. I figured if he loved the series, I would at least like them and I was right! I loved this series, I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

Gone is a dystopian, suspense-filled book that will capture your attention from the first few pages. It will have you on the edge of your seat, anticipating the character's next move.

 “Welcome to Perdido beach, where our motto is: Radiation, what radiation?”
