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. GONE.
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 from the Gone series by Michael Grant. This series is about the town Perdido Beach. Every person at the age of 15 or over disappears from this town. There is a barrier that cuts the area off from the outside world. The area inside the barrier is called the FAYZ. This nickname stands for Fallout Alley Youth Zone. Some people inside the FAYZ have superpowers while other people don’t. One of the guys with a superpower is called Sam. In the first book Sam becomes the leader of Perdido Beach.
Hunger is set three months after Gone. Most of the food has been wasted so the people inside the FAYZ have to figure out what to do or the whole town will starve to death. Though I enjoyed Gone but I felt myself being less excited about Hunger. I love the idea of the story but for me this book was a bit chaotic to read. There were so many different characters and plots in this book. Everytime I got into the story of one character, the story was cut off to a story of a different character.
Though I’m curious to see where the story will go, I’m not quite sure yet if I will continue reading this series.
