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 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.  In this scene, Quinn tries to get Sam to understand what he sees as the new reality.

The Tease:
"You try and act all superior, Sam, all righteous, but you haven't even figured it out yet.  Worst that happened to us back then was we get in trouble, get suspended, get an 'F' or whatever.  Screw up now and it's a baseball bat up alongside your head.  There were always bullies, but the adults were still in charge.  Now?
Now the bullies rule."
 -Gone, by Michael Grant
