Publisher Comments:

When Ellie and six of her friends return home from a camping trip deep in the bush, they find things hideously wrong — their families gone, houses empty and abandoned, pets and stock dead. Gradually they begin to comprehend that their country has been invaded and everyone in the town has been taken prisoner. As the horrible reality of the situation becomes evident they have to make a life-and-death decision: to run back into the bush and hide, to give themselves up to be with their families, or to stay and try to fight. This reveting, tautly-drawn novel seems at times to be only a step away from today's headlines.

Review:

Synopsis:

World War III becomes an unstoppable reality in the action-packed first installment of the Tomorrow series--an international bestseller in an eye-catching new paperback.

When Ellie and her friends go camping, they have no idea they're leaving their old lives behind forever. Despite a less-than-tragic food shortage and a secret crush or two, everything goes as planned. But a week later, they return home to find their houses empty and their pets starving. Something has gone wrong--horribly wrong. Before long, they realize the country has been invaded, and the entire town has been captured--including their families and all their friends.

Ellie and the other survivors face an impossible decision: They can flee for the mountains or surrender. Or they can fight.

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!
