Publisher's Summary

The book that began the series that became the legend....

Now a major television series.

Somewhere out there Ellie and her friends are hiding. They're shocked, they're frightened, they're alone. Their world has changed with the speed of a slamming door. They've got no weapons - except courage. They've got no help - except themselves. They've got nothing - except friendship. How strong can you be when the world is full of people trying to kill you?

Fans of Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins and John Flanagan will love John Marsden.

Language may offend. Warning: contains violence and adult themes.

Coming of age, with apocalyptic themes.

I loved this book as a teenager, and loved revisiting it as an adult. it's both hard-hitting in its realism and relatability, and engrossing in its jarring strangeness - we go from a normal bunch of kids camping out, to the fear of having to decide what to do as victims of a military invasion - hide? Fight? What would you do? These themes and associated thoughts and feelings are thoroughly explored with all the passion and introspection of reflective adolescence.

Suzi Dougherty's performance is spot-on, with varied pacing for the reflections and the action, and consistent, relatable voices for each character. She brings Ellie's narrative voice to life. This audiobook is worth a listen whether you're new to this series, or revisiting an old favourite in a new format. I can't wait to get to the others.
