It's been three months since everyone under the age of fifteen became trapped in the bubble known as the FAYZ.

Three months since all the adults disappeared.


Food ran out weeks ago. Everyone is starving, but no one wants to figure out a solution. And each day, more and more kids are evolving, developing supernatural abilities that set them apart from the kids without powers.

Tension rises and chaos is descending upon the town. It's the normal kids against the mutants. Each kid is out for himself, and even the good ones turn murderous.

But a larger problem looms. The Darkness, a sinister creature that has lived buried deep in the hills, begins calling to some of the teens in the FAYZ. Calling to them, guiding them, manipulating them.

The Darkness has awakened. And it is hungry.

        Hunger is the second book in the Gone book series. It again stars many main characters in a town called Perdido Beach after everyone over 15 vanishes. In this book, everyone is now starving due to poor management of food in their town. Additionally, people are not trying to farm to get more food. The leader of the town, Sam, is trying to find food, which is the main plot of the book. I really like the premise of this book, as if I were in the same situation, I would probably do the same thing. This book shows the reality of the situation, and makes me ponder about it. Also, I like this book (and the entire series in general) for having a bit of a sci-fi twist to it, where many people start developing mutant powers due to exposure to a power plant explosion. This leads to some normal people starting to hate the people with mutant powers. There starts to be a bit of an allegory to civil rights issues, which I find very interesting, especially in a young adult book. I feel that the right demographic for this book is young adults from the ages of 12-15. This is because there is a bit of language and inappropriate content in this book (and generally in the series) This book gets a 4 out of 5 from me.
