Oz, a normal 13 year old boy, wakes up in the bottom of his closet, covered in clothes. The last thing he knew as that he was sick. As he emerges from the closet, the only thing alive he can find in his house is his dog. Electricity doesn’t operate. All the people, with a few exceptions are gone and he has pieced together they have been ‘taken’. So off he starts from Tennessee to his uncle in Georgia. Or at least he hopes his uncle is alive. On the way he gathers a few people around in his journey to fight against “The Takers” and to figure out how to survive. It may seem strange a 13 year old will be the leader of a group, but it works. Their experiences are mirrored in a comic book drawn by a boy with Down’s Syndrome that Oz feels he had a part in driving the boy to suicide. The events Oz experiences has been predicted in this comic book. A compelling read, enough to make you want to start the next one before you even get finished with this one.
