** My theory had always been that Anna and Emma poofed very early on, after only a few days, before everything went absolutely insane in the FAYZ, which may have meant they could get away with it. But when Mary and Francis poofed, things had already gone to shit, and the Gaiaphage had been and was in close proximity to them (Nerezza was with Orsay a lot, and both Mary and Francis had seen Orsay). So I thought that being close to the Gaiaphage messed things up, and the longer you were in the FAYZ, everything got more messed up. Another theory was that, like said above, when Sam and Caine refused to poof, someone got broken in the process.

* Ages. Computer Jack is stated to be twelve, but he's in fifth grade, which isn't how most schools work. Bug is stated to be ten in Gone, but in Fear he "just turned ten".
* In Gone, Lana's grandfather is described as "Chumash Indian" but she is described in Light as White, though WordOfGod says she is Latina.
** She could be white passing.

*** Isn`t it implied that bug is usually exactly that?

** Anna and Emma poofed, involuntarily, before anyone knew how to stop it. [[spoiler:Francis and Mary poofed on purpose, after everyone knew poofing could be avoided. Maybe it was punishment for wanting to leave, or maybe something happened after Sam and Caine didn't poof and the poofing process was broken.]]

*** Except the kids were using them before the FAYZ came about. [[spoiler:Petey's power even caused the FAYZ]].

** IIRC, ''Light'' implies that the powers are connected specifically to the gaiaphage (which existed before the FAYZ occurred), but once the FAYZ was created, it cut off that entire area from the rest of reality, such that whatever connection to the gaiaphage enabling the powers was broken. It wouldn't surprise me if there had been several adults in Perdido Beach who had also been developing powers that were lost once the FAYZ occurred.

** My theory was always that [[spoiler: when Anna and Emma disappeared, it was just Little Pete's doing, and the Gaiaphage didn't care. But in ''Lies'', the Gaiaphage created a plan to mutate everyone that poofed, and what it did to Francis and Mary was what it would've done to everyone.]]

** Periods stopping doesn't mean infertile. Plenty of infertile women have periods - there can often be other reasons why they can't get pregnant (issues with the embryo emplanting in the womb wall etc). Also, plenty of high level female athletes (e.g. Gymnasts) often don't have periods at all until they stop, as they tend to have low body weight (which IS a factor in periods occuring), however this doesn't mean they can't get pregnant.

** Still, considering all the deaths, that's still a low number.
