I cannot recommend this series highly enough. This is book one of seven in the Tomorrow Series. Each book is engrossing, well written, and exciting. Highly recommended

I have watched the movie several times before I discovered that there is a series of books. John Marsden creates a 'teen' book that is believable, has likable characters, complete with their own teenage problems, yet strong enough to organize themselves into a dynamic, productive group. Therefore, the audience can do nothing other than cheer them on. Risks are taken and the audience are carried along for the ride. Excellent story telling. Good for young teens to little old ladies. LOL I cannot wait for the next in the series. Unfortunately, EPL does not carry the whole series in book form.

This book is good, but I felt as if the book didn't exactly pull e in. it isn't the book I would normally read. It is OK but it seamed the story a bit unreal.
