“The first in the 6-part Gone series by Michael Grant“
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
The book I am reviewing is called Gone; by Michael Grant. There are 6 books in the series, the first one being Gone. My goal is to get people to try these books without giving too much away.
The premise of the book is that some event (explained in the last book) causes all of the adults to dissipate, the only people left are younger than 15. Another central part of the setting is that there is a dome that traps the kids inside (much like the one in the hunger games or under the dome).
One of the main reasons I enjoyed this series is the numerous characters, there is one main character, but he only occupies a third of the narration (they are written in 3rd person limited). Another plus is that the characters come from diverse religions that are mostly treated with respect.
