John Marsden is one of Australias most well known and celebrated authors. He is the author of numerous best selling books including 'TheTomorrow' series, which we are doing an assignment on. Preceding is the Ellie series of which each follow a group of teenagers trying to live a suitable life in a Warzone.
The book, "Tomorrow, when the War began", is based on a group of 8 ordinary Australian teenagers who set out on what seemed to be an average camping trip, not knowing that they are to embark on the most exuberant and accelerating adventures of their entire lives. There, they develop life skills friendships, rivalries, endure the ravages of war, and fight their way through hell and back in an epic struggle to survive the destructive warzone that is Wirawee, Australia.
