In the first part of Gone, the teacher in Sam’s and Quinn’s class vanished. This one weird incident is part of a huge supernatural event affecting thousands in the story, but we don’t know that yet. Why? Because the writer has started things small.
In the next passage, Sam and Quinn have just met up with Gone’s third main character, Astrid. The same age as the boys, she’s smart enough to attend upper level classes. Not only has her teacher disappeared, but the rest of her class has, too.
Take a look.
