That's A Novel Idea just started this fun new meme!

Here are the rules:

5 Stars or less for your rating?

This week, I'm using this meme to get out of a review. :-D

Here are mine:
Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden (audio)
Suspenseful, dramatic
Ellie, Lee, Homer
Liked: pace, the action, and the actress who read the book. Disliked: unanswered questions at the end of the book (but it's a I forgive the author).
Stars :-D

This book is being made into a movie, so you guys should check it out! I read most of the series in middle school but never finished it.

Basic synopsis:
Ellie and her friends go bush - camping out in the wilderness- for a few days during summer break. When the come back their homes are deserted and they find out that they've been invaded and that most of their families and townsfolk are being held in the center of town. What will they do?

A little more about my reaction, since I'm not doing a separate review post..

I loved this book, read it a long time ago and it really hasn't lost any of its pizazz. It's written from the point of view of Ellie, as she is writing all of what happened down in a journal. There's some romance, some serious suspense and, of course, action and reconnaissance. So, make sure you take note that this is a rather large series - about 7 or 8 books I believe and you'll definitely be wanting more when you finish the first one.
