Description-
  • While Ellie and her friends are away in the bush, the world changes. Suddenly they are in the toughest situations humans can confront, facing life and death decisions. They are thrown into a world where they find courage, initiative, spirit and wisdom ... or they die. The first of an enormously popular series that has been translated and published all over the world. "The reader is unwittingly flung headlong and gasping into the plot ... the images created are so vivid that they stay with you long after the book is reluctantly closed on the final page." Melbourne Herald-Sun.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The author combines a story of a WWIII invasion with a romance among several teenage couples. Narrator Suzi Dougherty's voice has the raspy scratch of a heavy smoker and the accent of the Australian bush. She assumes the part of Ellie, a precocious student knocking on the door of adulthood who discovers that her town has been taken over by an unknown military. At first, Dougherty's fast pace and Australian vocabulary of wombats, wallabies, and roustabouts may leave American listeners spinning, but with a little time she comes into focus. Her delivery of the dialogue of Ellie's mates differentiates them more by their unique attitudes than by distinctive voices. Her narrative style and the author's adroit descriptions create more entertainment than the thin plot. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
  • Publishers Weekly A gripping tale, told with Marsden's customary incisiveness.
  • School Library Journal Ellie's uncommonly honest and clear narration makes this coming-of-age adventure a story [you] won't forget. Fast-paced and provocative, it's a natural for book talking.
