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 fifteen disappears.  In this scene, Sam faces the moment that might result in his own disappearance.

The Tease:
"The face of their mother wavered.  The tender flesh seemed to break apart in jig-saw-puzzle pieces.  The gently smiling, pleading mouth melted, collapsed inward.  In its place a mouth ringed with needle-sharp teeth.  Eyes filled with green fire.
"I'll have you yet," the monster raged with sudden violence."
