Publisher's Summary

"I held my line. I knew from the war, if not from shooting rabbits, that we were safe enough for the first moments. It is too impossible to hit a target like us from a helicopter that's rocking and rolling and trying to find its target. But maybe this guy had new equipment or maybe he was a brilliant shot or maybe he was just plain lucky. Bullet holes tore through the ute like a huge metal punch was suddenly and roughly slamming a simultaneous line of them from our rear to our front." Ellie has struggled to put the war behind her and lead a normal life. Although what's normal about your parents having been murdered; trying to run a farm and go to school; and bringing up a young boy who's hiding terrible secrets about his past?

What the Critics Say

"Marsden has the rare skill of making his audience feel that they are part of the story and vicariously another character. Ellie speaks directly to them and in their language". (The Age)

Don't want a cure

The ongoing struggle and story of Ellie, the rebel child soldier with a will to survive and heart of gold. Ellie is growing up and still trying hard to keep her farm, keep her sanity and remember what it means to be human and happy. Ellie's story is one of strength and intelligence, of loss and pain, of wondering why horrible things happen to innocent people... Looking forward to listening as Ellie's story continues.

New narrator?!

A little while into the book and you get use to the new chick but Suzi does the accents and tones and feelings so much more in depth and better, still a great story though & it only took 2 chapters to get used to her voice.
