Featured Series

Gone by Michael Grant

Mixing elements of science fiction, horror, and dark fantasy, this blisteringly fast-paced series features a large cast of pre-teen characters struggling for survival–and dominance–in a world where everyone over the age of 14 simply disappeared one day. Tension and drama run high in these books, and there’s a lot of action and violence as groups of “normal” teens and mutant “freaks” battle for power and control.

1) Gone

2) Hunger

3) Lies

4) Plague

5) Fear

6) Light
