In the blink of an eye, everyone disappears. Gone. Except for the young.
Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not a single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Gone, too, are the phones, internet, and television. There is no way to get help. Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks.
And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers that grow stronger by the day.
In the postapocalyptic town of Perdido Beach, California, sides are being chosen; a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Powerful against powerless. It's a terrifying new world.
