One moment they were there... Then next they were gone.

Every adult at Perdido Beach and the surrounding area disappears without a second's warning.

Every person fifteen and older is gone.

Only children remain after an accident at the local nuclear power plant nearly destroys everything, and those children have no idea what to do.

Now they have the run of the entire town! McDonald's is theirs! All the junk food they can eat! Even alcohol is theirs if they want it!

But Sam Temple knows that this is no time to celebrate. He, Astrid, Edilio, and Quinn, all set out to find out what happened and why there is a HUGE dome cutting off their home from the rest of the world.

And when the kids from the nearby "reform" school come to town and take over, they know there could be trouble.

Making matters worse are all the strange mutating creatures around like the seagulls with talons for hunting, the snakes with wings, and the coyotes who can talk.

What happened to Perdido Beach? Will they ever get out? Will anyone ever find them? And what will happen to Sam in just a few days when he turns fifteen?
