In September 1976, Reverend Jim Jones chose San Francisco’s Opportunity II High, a public alternative school where Bebelaar and Cabral taught, as the one he wanted the Peoples Temple teenagers to attend. And Then They Were Gone: Teenagers of Peoples Temple from High School to Jonestown introduces 28 of those Temple teenagers and focuses on the fifteen Bebelaar and Cabral knew best of those who attended the small school until their sudden departures to Jonestown in the spring and summer of 1977. Most never returned.
