Michael Grant, author of the Gone series, the Messenger of Fear series, the Magnificent Twelve series, and the Front Lines trilogy, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three schools in France. Even as an adult he kept moving, and in fact he became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn't tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent. Yes, even Antarctica. He lives in California with his wife, Katherine Applegate, with whom he cowrote the wildly popular Animorphs series.

"Extraordinarily skillful pacing, which leaves the reader constantly on the verge of a new discovery."--KLIATT "If Stephen King had written Lord of the Flies, it might have been a little like this novel."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review) "A tour de force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless."--Booklist (starred review)
