Part of the 'Gone' Series
This title is in stock RRP: £6.99 Saving £1.75 (25%)
Selected by Julia Eccleshare:
This is the fourth book (of six) in the mind-blowing Gone series...a blood-pumping, white-knuckle ride of epic proportions. It's a world without adults and normal life has crashed and burned. When you hit 15 everything changes. It's a sci-fi thriller first and foremost but any reader who wants an intense all action thriller that races along and leaves you wanting more should get into the series immediately. Brilliantly plotted with characters you'll both love and hate. Lord of the Flies for the 'Heroes' generation is not far off the beat.
Warning: Contains scenes of cruelty and some violence.

About The Author
Michael Grant is the co-creator and coauthor of the series of books and publishing phenomenon Animorphs and the Everworld series. Michael has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent, including Antarctica. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife, Katherine Applegate, and their two children, (Jake and Julia), and far too many pets.
