Grade 7 Up–In the second in a planned six-book series, the children of Perdito Beach, CA, have survived without adults for three months following the FAYZ, a nuclear event that caused everyone over the age of 14 to vanish and an impenetrable barrier to rise for 20 miles around the town. Now their food is almost gone, and in their desperation and fear, the young people are beginning to sort themselves into factions; those without special powers opposing those who have them. To add to the suspense, a terrifying presence that calls itself the Gaiaphage, a being of overwhelming hunger, is insinuating itself into the minds of the susceptible. Like Gone (HarperTeen, 2008), this novel is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Nonstop action and recurring scenes of graphic violence, death, and torture will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they race toward the climactic cliff-hanger ending. Give this to teens who liked Stephen King's The Stand (Doubleday, 1990) or William Golding's Lord of the Flies (Penguin, 1959).–Jane Henriksen Baird, Anchorage Public Library, AK

It touches on other important issues such as tolerance, prejudice, fear. Challenges to leadership. Many themes in the book can be used to reflect on events that are happening today.
I personally will be taking a break from this series and explore other book series. But I am fairly confident I will be back in a few months to continue the journey to see if the kids survived the unsurvivable.
Anyway, so glad I stuck with Hunger. I zipped through the 608 pages in one weekend. Yes it was that hard to put down (once I got past the first chapter) mostly due to great story and constant cliffhangers. I finished and immediately purchased Lies. Thank God for Amazon and my Kindle, I had the third book of the series in my hands within minutes.
Everything in the FAYZ is falling apart, and the tension and hunger are causing panic. Will these children be able to get through this, or will they destroy themselves and give life to the nuclear monstrosity in the cave.?
