Gone by Michael Grant

This is the first book in this young adult dystopian series. There are currently six books in the Gone series.  In one second, everything is normal. The next second it is not. In the blink of an eye, everyone 15 or older vanishes into thin air, along with phone signals, internet, and anyway to get help. A barrier is surrounding them, and there is no way to get through. On top of that, some people get powers. Strange abilities that cause power struggles. Ones with powers against ones that don't. Time is running out. When you turn 15... you vanish too.

I liked that the story was shown by a lot of different perspectives, and it helped to see what was happening at the same time as other things. Although there were a lot of different characters, it was pretty easy to see who the main characters were. The characters were all so different, and it made them all memorable.

The book was very suspenseful, and I did not want to put it down. It is filled with twists and turns that you would never expect. The amount of visual details was incredible, and I could picture every single thing that happened. I liked the concept, and the thing about getting powers was awesome.

The author did a great job with the ending. It was just enough for it to tell the important stuff, and still have a cliffhanger. This is an amazing book, and I cannot wait to read the other ones in the series!
