HELL of a book
This book is one of seven in the tomorrow series by John Marsden. The charecters in this book are so real, the reader is able to relate themselves and even other personal friends to fit the character profiles.
A group of teenages go camping and then find their entire world upside down. This book differs form other teenage books as it deals not only with the teenage issues everyone goes through, like sex, drugs, violence and death. But it is also dealing with a different situation, one of war, terror and who can you trust.
the question becomes, How do you live your life when your the one in charge, and one mistake could get you killed? by Bobbie Lennon
When Ellie and her friends go camping, they have no idea they're leaving their old lives behind forever. Despite a less-than-tragic food shortage and a secret crush or two, everything goes as planned. But a week later, they return home to find their houses empty and their pets starving. Something has gone wrong--horribly wrong. Before long, they realize the country has been invaded, and the entire town has been captured--including their families and all their friends. Ellie and the other survivors face an impossible decision: They can flee for the mountains or surrender. Or they can fight. by karina
more than young adult fiction
this book is set in an australian country town and is about seven teenagers who decide to go on a camping trip on their own into hell. the name hell is given to a place in the bush that looks impossible to get in to, but they soon find a way in and find it is beautiful! they are totally cut off from the rest of society and don't realise their country has been invaded until a few days later when they emerge to find their homes empty and their pets dead or dying. this is a story about guts and determination and makes you think 'what would i do?' if you found yourself in this situation. the story is completely realistic and i stuggled to put it down. i recommend it to everyone, not just teenagers. it has just been made into a movie, and they did a fairly good job of that too!
