Bookish Advent Calendar - Day Thirteen!
Gone is one of my favourite YA high concept sci-fi thrillers. What if an entire town was suddenly cut off from the rest of the world, and everyone over the age of fifteen disappeared? Oh, oh, oh, and some of those left behind developed superpowers? It's like Lord of the Flies meets X-Men, and it is sooooo good. It's dark, it's intense, and it explores issues I think a lot of authors would steer clear of. This is the perfect book for anyone who likes their superhero tales but is weary of mainstream interpretations.
