Tomorrow, When the War Began: Tomorrow #01 by John Marsden
Tomorrow, When the War Began: Tomorrow #01

I stumbled across this series by chance. I was impressed by the fact that Australia was using this series to try to get more young people hooked on reading. Once I started the series, I was hooked, even going to bed early just to have more time to read. I loved the characters, the pacing is perfect, and the adventures are both original and believable. I really appreciated the fact that the main character, a thoughtful young woman, is conflicted by the decisions she and her friends make, and that we get to hear her thoughts and struggles. I loved the entire series and can't wait to reread it - and to hook my students on it!
