Fayz Fried Cabbage with Meaty Scraps

In the blink of an eye, everyone disappears. Gone. Except for the young. There are teens, but not one single adult. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what’s happened.

Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day.

It’s a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a fight is shaping up. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: on your birthday, you disappear just like everyone else…

Ingredients

250g Cabbage (shredded)
100g Leek (roughly chopped)
2 Potatoes (peeled and chopped)
4 strips Bacon (finely chopped)
4 Garlic cloves (minced)
Salt
Pepper
Parsley (to garnish)

I loved the Gone series by Michael Grant, and I’m currently reading the sequels to the original 6: Monster, Villain and (coming out later this year) Hero.

The books are dark. With ties to Lord of the Flies and Under the Dome, they describe the horrors the children find themselves after cut off from the world. If that wasn’t scary enough, the addition of superpowers to some of the children, mutating animals and an evil presence lurking in the darkness makes the plot frightening for the characters.

Gone is a series of 6 books inside the FAYZ, starting with Gone, then Hunger, Lies, Plague, Fear and finally Light. My favourite characters in the series were Astrid, Diana, Lana, Dekka, Brianna, and Albert. I also loved some of the minor characters like Duck, Orsay and Virtue.
