Gone by Michael Grant
All of the children in Peridido Beach wake up one morning, have breakfast and continue with their normal routine. But one thing is about to change. In the blink of an eye, all of the adults above the age of 15 disappear. There is no explanation to why they are GONE.
The town of Peridido Beach and surrounding areas are enclosed in a dome like barrier that is separating the real world and this fantasy world. The children at first are scared, but soon realize that they have the freedom to live wherever they want and eat whatever they want; not realizing it would come back to bite them in the butt. While everyone was freaking out about the so called "POOF", the FAYZ was created. The FAYZ stands for Fallout Alley Youth Zone. In the FAYZ there were unusual events happening like battles with coyotes and crazy mutations, but that's not all. The children are developing abnormal powers that are going to be used for both good and evil.
The fate of Peridido Beach will lie in the hands of one boy by the name of Sam Temple and his girlfriend Astrid Ellison. Not to mention the 5 year old autistic brother of Astrid. It will be a long battle to defeat The Darkness.
