Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Scholastic will reissue the first two volumes in John Marsden's the Tomorrow series-Tomorrow, When the War Began and The Dead of Night-this month, and will feature them in its on-line summer-reading campaign (see Children's Bookshelf, June 8). One additional title will appear every other month. PW called the story of some Australian friends who return from a camping trip to discover that enemy forces have invaded the country and imprisoned everyone in town "a gripping tale."

From Library Journal:

Ellie and her friends were off camping in the bush when their town was invaded by a foreign military and their families taken prisoner. Now they must decide-surrender or fight for their country's freedom. Thus begins a seven-book series that has sold over five million copies worldwide. Listen Up: Ellie, the series' narrator, is tougher than the Terminator's Sarah Connor and still a bit of an idiot about boys. Dougherty's Australian accent is addictive, a whiskey-rasp that strikes a perfect balance between innocence and war-weary experience.-Angelina Benedetti, King Cty. Lib. Syst., WA (c) Copyright 2010.
