Description-

  • The second book in Michael Grant's New York Times bestselling Gone series, Hunger is a thrilling, action-packed story that is impossible to put down.

    It's been three months since all the adults disappeared. Gone. Food ran out weeks ago and starvation is imminent. Meanwhile, the normal teens have grown resentful of the kids with powers. And when an unthinkable tragedy occurs, chaos descends upon the town. There is no longer right and wrong. 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.

About the Author-

  • Michael Grant, author of the Gone series, the Messenger of Fear series, the Magnificent Twelve series, and the Front Lines trilogy, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, with whom he cowrote the wildly popular Animorphs series. You can visit him online at www.themichaelgrant.com and follow him on Twitter @MichaelGrantBks.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books anth - 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.

    In the sequel to 2008's Gone
    , things have only gotten worse for the kids trapped in the small area around Perdido Beach, Calif. After three months, they still have no contact with the outside world, more dangerous mutant animals are cropping up and food supplies are becoming perilously scarce. Even as Caine starts to recover from the confrontation with the town leader (and half-brother) Sam, the evil gaiaphage exerts its influence, manipulating Caine and others in a plan to gain more power. The ongoing divide between kids who have developed powers and ones who haven't also threatens to lead to violence. Grant throws everything at the children, from gory deaths every bit as nasty as in mainstream horror to sexual tension, eating disorders and drug use. The large cast of characters—from a variety of racial and sexual backgrounds—might be hard for some to keep track of, but readers looking for intense, nearly nonstop action and emotional drama will find lots to enjoy, even as the climactic ending sets up another sequel. Ages 12–up.

    Gr 7 Up-In the second in a planned six-book series, the children of Perdito Beach, CA, have survived without adults for three months following the FAYZ, a nuclear event that caused everyone over the age of 14 to vanish and an impenetrable barrier to rise for 20 miles around the town. Now their food is almost gone, and in their desperation and fear, the young people are beginning to sort themselves into factions; those without special powers opposing those who have them. To add to the suspense, a terrifying presence that calls itself the Gaiaphage, a being of overwhelming hunger, is insinuating itself into the minds of the susceptible. Like "Gone" (HarperTeen, 2008), this novel is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Nonstop action and recurring scenes of graphic violence, death, and torture will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they race toward the climactic cliff-hanger ending. Give this to teens who liked Stephen Kings "The Stand" (Doubleday, 1990) or William Goldings "Lord of the Flies" (Penguin, 1959)."Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK"

    Grades 6-9 Three months after the events of Gone (2008), in which everyone over the age of 14 disappears, food is getting scarce and more kids are developing powers, leading to a battle for control between normals and moofs. A larger and more sinister element emerges as well: the Darkness, awakened and hungry, is infiltrating minds to manipulate children to do its bidding. Disturbing, brilliantly plotted, and boasting a balanced mix of action and scheming, Grants book also features multidimensional characters that embody a range of good and evil. While second books in series sometimes fall short, thats anything but the case here.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2009, American Library Association.)

  • Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review) "Readers will be unable to avoid involuntarily gasping, shuddering, or flinching while reading this suspense-filled story."
  • School Library Journal "Like Gone, this novel is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Nonstop action."
