Ellie and her friends return from a camping trip to find their country at war. Learning together, they fight back -- battling fear, rage, and the invading army that has stolen their land, seized their homes, taken their families, and destroyed their future. Continuing the story begun in Tomorrow When the War Began and The Dead of Night, John Marsden paints a shockingly real portrait of teenagers who take great risks to defend what is theirs.
