Hunger (Gone Series #2)

Hunger - Michael  Grant This, the second book in the "Gone" series, was every bit as intense as the first, and perhaps even more dark and desperate. As the children of Perdido Beach continue in their "Lord of the Flies"-esque, adult-free existence, they're now fighting a lack of food AND a giant radiation monster. I did get a little irritated with the stupidity of some of the main characters, and most of the minor characters are still incredibly one-dimensional, but the variety of personalities and super powers kept it interesting anyways. The action just keeps going and there's never a dull moment, which makes for a fun read, even if it's not incredibly "deep."
