Ellie and her friends were off camping in the bush when their town was invaded by a foreign military and their families taken prisoner. Now they must decide-surrender or fight for their country's freedom. Thus begins a seven-book series that has sold over five million copies worldwide. Listen Up: Ellie, the series' narrator, is tougher than the Terminator's Sarah Connor and still a bit of an idiot about boys. Dougherty's Australian accent is addictive, a whiskey-rasp that strikes a perfect balance between innocence and war-weary experience.

When Ellie and her friends go camping, they have no idea they're leaving their old lives behind forever. Despite a less-than-tragic food shortage and a secret crush or two, everything goes as planned. But a week later, they return home to find their houses empty and their pets starving. Something has gone wrong--horribly wrong. Before long, they realize the country has been invaded, and the entire town has been captured--including their families and all their friends.
Ellie and the other survivors face an impossible decision: They can flee for the mountains or surrender. Or they can fight.
