John Gone is BOOK ONE of THE DIASPORA TRILOGY
Sixteen-year-old John has stumbled across an abandoned wristwatch half-buried in the sand behind his house. Curious, he places it on his wrist; to his surprise, it won’t come off.
Suddenly, each day at 3:14 P.M. John begins to uncontrollably teleport around the world. He might materialize anywhere–a burning African desert, a Canadian forest, even a Siberian prison–and must do what he can to survive until 3:14 A.M. when the watch takes him home again.
But John’s adventures come with a price …
When a scientist mysteriously trapped far below the surface of the Earth makes contact through a hologram in the watch’s face, John learns that his travels will eventually kill him. Soon, he’s faced with an impossible choice: continue to endanger his life by using the watch, or switch places with the scientist and risk losing his freedom forever.
