Gone Case Books 1 and 2 (2010 and 2011)

Gone Case Books 1 and 2 (2010 and 2011) are a two-part graphic novel adapted by Koh Hong Teng from the award-winning novel by Dave Chua.

In August 2011, a Chinese edition of Book 1 of the graphic novel, titled Liao Liao, was launched.

Set in a Singapore HDB estate, Gone Case is the coming-of-age story of 12-year-old Yong, who journeys through the demands of school, taking care of his younger siblings, the death of his grandmother, family troubles, run-ins with the neighbourhood gang, infatuation and finally the end of a friendship.

The original novel by Dave Chua won the 1996 Singapore Literature Prize Commendation Award, and was published by Ethos Books in 2002.
