Gone by Christine Kersey

Gone (Parallel Trilogy, Book 1)Gone by Christine Kersey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Morgan is a 16yr old American teenager who act rather immaturely when she argues with her Mum. She decides to run away and after a night in the woods she finds herself in a parallel universe.

Unable to find her family, Morgan finds herself in a world full of thin people where the government fights obesity through the F.A.T programme. (Federally Assisted Thinning) Morgan eventually find her family, but everything is different. She tries to fit in, whilst making a plan to return home to her own world as quickly as possible.

The idea behind the book is perhaps to appeal to teenagers and the YA market of readers, encouraging them to think about their health and the problems of diet and obesity. The book is the first in a series and ends on a cliff hanger with Morgan being taken by the local Enforcers.
