Book Title: Gone (Gone #1)
Author: Michael Grant
“Sam had a DVD in his hand. He said, ‘Yesterday I sent Edilio to the power plant to get two things. First, a cache of automatic weapons from the guardhouse.’
‘Yeah. Not just for us to have, but to make sure the other side doesn’t get them.’
‘Now we have an arms race,’ Astrid said.
Her tone seemed to irritate Sam. ‘You want me to leave them for Caine?’
‘I wasn’t criticizing, just… you know. Ninth graders with machine guns; it’s hard to make that a happy story.’
Sam relented. He even grinned. ‘Yeah. The phrase ‘ninth graders with machine guns’ isn’t exactly followed by ‘have a nice day’.’”
Gone by Michael Grant
