Gone by Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: February 9th 2010
Genre: Paranormal, Romance
Janie thought she knew what her future held. And she thought she’d made her peace with it. But she can’t handle dragging Cabel down with her.
She knows he will stay with her, despite what she sees in his dreams. He’s amazing. And she’s a train wreck. Janie sees only one way to give him the life he deserves: She has to disappear. And it’s going to kill them both.
Then a stranger enters her life — and everything unravels. The future Janie once faced now has an ominous twist, and her choices are more dire than she’d ever thought possible. She alone must decide between the lesser of two evils. And time is running out. . . .
This is the conclution to the Dream Catcher Series, and I personally wouldn’t have written it any other way. If you have not read the first book, the main character, Janie is a dream catcher, which means she falls into other people’s dreams. If you have not read the first two books I do not suggest you continue reading this review because it’ll spoil them.
In Gone Janie finds out who her father is and begins to learn her choices as a dream catcher. This book is really about Janie’s self discovery and making choices for her future. Unlike the first two books this is not a story about Cable and Janie solving a case with the police, this is more of a personal journy for Janie.
Again, I love, love, LOVE Cable. He’s just so perfect, he’s flawed but he loves Janie so much, and even when they go through tough times they always find a way to make it through.
Janie’s mom finally makes a notable appearance in the book and throughout the story you find out why she is so broken.
The ending was very open-ended, but I really like how it was concluded with Janie making a choice.
