Staff Reviews

At a loose end now that you've finished The Hunger Games? These
books, about a group of teenagers facing a military invasion of their
home, are one of my perennial favorites, and they've recently been
re-released by Scholastic. It follows a core group of characters
throughout an entire war and beyond, charting their progress from
ordinary teenagers into guerilla fighters. The Tomorrow series is
fast-paced and provocative, has a tough and articulate heroine, and
doesn't shy away from the exploring darker aspects of war.

From Hell to Stratton isn’t an easy trip, especially when the enemy’s headquarters lies somewhere in between. And that’s exactly where Ellie and her friends unwillingly find themselves—smack in the middle of the Wirrawee airfield. With only five of them against hundreds of armed soldiers, escape seems like a suicide mission. The odds aren’t good, and Kevin’s nervous breakdown isn’t helping matters.

Ellie and her compatriots are back, battling to stay alive and struggling to stay together in John Marsden’s latest book in the TOMORROW, WHEN THE WAR BEGAN series. High-speed truck chases, unexpected river journeys, and treachery by one of their own are just a few of the problems these Australian teens face in this gritty tale of war and survival.
