Student Saturday: Gone by Michael Grant
I try to change up my reviewers. However, I have some very prolific readers this year. They are the ones reading so much and so fast, then turning in several reviews at one time. So for the next several weeks you will be seeing reviews by this student.
Student Reviewer: Elizabeth B.
I really enjoyed Gone by Michael Grant. There was a kid named Sam Temple. In the book he was the kind of person who would jump into a burning building to save a little kid or help drive the bus when the bus driver had a heart attack. At his high school, on a regular day, all of a sudden everybody over the age of 14 started disappearing. The kids, all ages, had to fend for themselves. There were eventually traitors and bad guys, and a war between kids was unfolding. All the kids took matters into their own hands, with no adults. Some kids wanted to be in control, some did not. I really liked this book because even with a huge headache, I still had an urge to keep reading. I could relate to this book because at one point in my life, I was actually thinking the same thing. What if there were no parents, no adults? Oh yeah, and to make matters worse, some of the kids magically have powers. Would you love to live there?
