About This Book
"Fans of 16-year-old Ellie Linton, gutsy guerrilla fighter from Marsden’s Tomorrow series, will be overjoyed that she’s back in an exciting series of her own." — School Library Journal
"Ellie's grief is palpable and heartbreaking, and Marsden's always talented touch for constructing combat tensions is brilliantly balanced here with Ellie's need to live in a recovering world." — Kirkus Reviews
Internationally bestselling author John Marsden takes us beyond the Tomorrow series ... but the war isn't over.
For Ellie Linton, being back on the farm with her parents is what makes the terrible things that happened during the war — the things she, Homer, Lee, Fi, and the others had to do — all worthwhile. It's where she belongs.
But the war won't let her go. A devastating tragedy has shattered any hope she ever had to reclaim her life, or herself. It's a new kind of fight. And the enemy isn't always from the other side of the border.
Another spectacular novel of war and its consequences by bestselling author John Marsden.
