Lies: A Gone Novel is the book trailer for Lies distributed by HarperCollins. It was released on the HarperCollins website and on YouTube on April 26, 2010. It is the first Gone trailer distributed by HarperCollins.
Albert has a live-action appearance for the first time in this trailer. Howard and John Terrafino also have cameos in one scene; however, one of their faces is blurry, and another's back is turned. It is unknown which one is Howard and which one is John.
The trailer is narrated by Sam. It starts out with a young boy celebrating his birthday at home, when all of his parents and party guests disappear. It is then shown that all adults have disappeared throughout town, leaving buildings deserted and some infants alone. Sam explains that some of the remaining population (kids that were younger than 15) started developing supernatural powers, including Sam himself, Brianna, and Caine Soren. A town council, consisting of Astrid Ellison, Sam Temple, Albert Hillsborough, Howard, and John Terrafino, is created to keep the town stable so that kids don't do anything bad. Caine is given as an example of one of those kids. When Caine's life is shown to be threatened by Sam, Sam shows mercy and walks away. However, with his back turned, Caine attempts to use his powers to kill him. Another scene shows Sam in the nuclear power plant, seeing the shadow of Drake Merwin and fleeing.
Sam explains that order cannot always be kept in the place they call the FAYZ, and it is important only to survive in this new world. In the last scene of the trailer, Sam uses his powers to fight off the Human Crew.
Sam narrated the trailer:
- "We all know what happened that day in Perdido Beach. The why of it doesn't matter much anymore. No warning, no explanation – suddenly, everyone fifteen and over was just gone. Some kids cracked. Some kids changed. Some of us have tried to keep it all from falling apart – make sure good kids survived, protect everyone from the kids who just, you know, do evil things. Evil things. I guess I tried to play hero. The hero thing doesn't always work out. The old world – parents, teachers, cops – that's gone now. And in this new world, all that matters is surviving. So that's what we do. What I do. Survive."
