Teaser Tuesday - Gone, by Michael Grant

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


"Gone" is the first book in a new series of Teen Fiction books written by Michael Grant, centered around the idea that in a single moment everyone over the age of fourteen disappears.  I've just started reading "Gone," so my Tease today is the opening sentences of Chapter One.  I'm already hooked...

The Tease:
"One minute the teacher was talking about the Civil War.  And the next minute he was gone.
No "poof."  No flash of light.  No explosion."
 -Gone, by Michael Grant

What's your Tease?


  1. Good teaser, I liked this one. Hope you enjoy it too! Here's ours: http://www.ourstack.blogspot.com/2013/04/tuesday-teasers-historical-fiction-and.html

    1. I downloaded the book to my Nook last night right before I went to bed, intending to read it for just a minute or two, but then had a difficult time putting it down! It starts out great, so we'll see how the rest of it goes...
