One day, they’re suddenly gone. All the adults – and all the answers. In the blink of an eye, the world changes, and the kids left behind must do all they can to survive. But total freedom is no joyride, and everyone’s idea of survival is different. Some look after themselves, and some look after others. Some will do anything for power – even kill. For Sam and Astrid, it’s a race against time as they try to solve the questions that now dominate their lives. What is the mysterious wall that has encircled the town of Perdido Beach and trapped everyone within it? Why have some kids developed strange powers? And can they defeat Caine and his gang of bullies before they turn fifteen themselves, and disappear too? It isn’t until the world collapses around you that you find out what kind of person you really are…
