This book follows the story of Sam and the other kids living on Perdido beach, California, starting on the day when all the adults disappear and an inpenatrable force field descends around them. The kids struggle to survive, as the lack of autority reveals childhoods darker, more evil side.
Due to radiation from a power plant, many children of the FAYZ (fallout alley youth zone) have acquired special abilities. Sam can create ball of light with his palms, while others can move objects with their minds, and one can even disable gravity.
This book follows their survival. It was quite like The Enemy, written by Charlie Higson, without the added danger of adult zombies who want to eat the hildren. This book was also more hopeful, as there is a slight chance of escape, whereas in The Enemy, it is up to the children to rebuild the world.
