Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's nearly six months since our country was invaded. We've lived in a war zone since January, and now it's July. So short a time, so long a time...I'm an expert on fear now. I think I've felt every strong feeling there is: love, hate, jealousy, rage. But fear's the greatest of them all. Nothing reaches inside and grabs you by the guts the way fear does. Nothing else possesses you like that. It's a kind of illness, a fever, that takes you over.

Ellie and her friends return from a camping trip to find their country at war. Learning together, they fight back — battling fear, rage, and the invading army that has stolen their land, seized their homes, taken their families, and destroyed their future. Continuing the story begun in Tomorrow, When the War Began and The Dead of Night, John Marsden paints a shockingly realistic portrait of teenagers who take great risks to defend what is theirs.

Review:

"Compulsively readable...Ellie touches lightly on the ethical conundrums of surrounding terrorism." The New York Times

Review:

"Fans of John Marsden...won't be disappointed by this third novel...combines suspense and action with Ellie's thoughtful self-examination and loads of detailed description....Readers won't find Ellie's story easy to forget." The Horn Book Magazine

Review:

"Marsden poses several questions — about right and wrong, the nature of evil, and what human beings are capable of under extreme circumstances." School Library Journal

Review:

"[An] exemplary depiction of a true living hell." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Marsden crafts one of the most exciting and harrowing sabotage sequences in YA literature....[W]ill grab even the most reluctant reader." Booklist

Review:

"It is a gripping story as much as it is a disturbing and graphic one." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Five desperate teens resort to terrorist tactics in this frighteningly realistic follow-up to Tomorrow, When The War Began, and The Dead of Night.

Synopsis:

Life in the war zone enters its sixth month of heart-stopping tension in the latest installment of the internationally bestselling Tomorrow series.

In the third installment of the Tomorrow saga, the anything-to-survive existence of Ellie and her friends has sharpened their senses and emboldened their plans. They aren't merely on the defensive anymore; they're also striking back. Their strategy? Attack the enemy not just on land, but also on water. If they have any hope of sabotaging the formidable container ship at Cobbler's Bay, then stealth is a must, but so, too, is one very big explosion.

And if they fail, they may face a whole new kind of terror — imprisonment.
