Just another WordPress.com site

By John Marsden

It’s just like any other day of the holidays when Ellie and her friends say goodbye to their families and head to the hills for a few days camping. They weren’t to know everything was about to change. It starts with the planes, then they find abandoned houses and dead and dying animals. The place they come back to is not the one they left. As they piece together more information they realise they have some big choices to make. Bigger than they ever thought they’d have to. Do they fight? Do they give up? Can they sacrifice everything they have?

A riveting read told from the perspective of Ellie. It is a story that gets you thinking about some of those big questions. These engaging characters are put in a terrible situation but Marsden doesn’t shy away from the sometimes devastating consequences their actions have. He respects his readers ability to think and as a result they are loyal and the series remains popular.
