Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden

ITomorrow_When_The_War_Began_Front_Covert was supposed to be a normal camping trip. Seven teenagers from rural Australia go to the outback for a weeklong trip. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary until one night while sitting around the campfire, several black jets zoom by overhead with unfamiliar markings. They don’t think too much about it at the time. When they finally get back home their families are all missing and their animals haven’t been fed for several days.

Australia has been taken over by a foreign army. Everyone in their small town has,  they discover, been rounded up and are being held captive at the local fairgrounds.

They decide they have three choices 1) Turn themselves in and join their family in captivity. 2) Go back to their campsite  and live off of the land. 3) Stay where they are and wage a guerilla warfare campaign against this unknown army. Seven teenagers against an army.

What would you do if you were them?
