              Australia's most popular young adult author John Marsden delivers the much anticipated second title in The Ellie Chronicles. Incurable follows While I Live, the post-war series featuring the immensely popular Ellie Linton, heroine and narrator of the Tomorrow series. I held my li...ne. 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? Packed full of action and high-drama, John Marsden delivers another fast-paced adventure that will thrill old fans and new readers alike.

              'We believe children should be adventurous. If they are not allowed the opportunity to be adventurous, we condemn them to a slow spiritual death. How else is the adolescent to understand his or her capabilities? Who would gallop an unproven horse at a high fence? Who would enter ...a race in a car which has not been subjected to rigorous stresses? Who wants to tackle adult life with no sense of his or her powers? We need to know what we can do.' Children have lost their freedom - to roam, to dare, to fail. Stifled by bureaucracy and helicopter parenting, they have been limited in their opportunities to learn by taking risks. John Marsden, the bestselling author of the Tomorrow series, has spent his life educating kids and teenagers and is passionate about the need to best prepare them for the rigours of adulthood. As the founder and principal of two schools, John has put his theories to the test and seen the empowering results of his methods.

              The first novel for adults from Australia's master storyteller: John Marsden. Thirteen-year-old Barnaby Fletch is a bag-and-bones orphan in London in the late 1700s. Barnaby lives on his wits and ill-gotten gains, on streets seething with the press of the throng and shadowed by s...inister figures. Life is a precarious business. When he hears of a paradise on the other side of the world - a place called Botany Bay - he decides to commit a crime and get himself transported to a new life, a better life. To succeed, he must survive the trials of Newgate Prison, the stinking hull of a prison ship and the unknown terrors of a journey across the world. And Botany Bay is far from the paradise Barnaby has imagined. When his past and present suddenly collide, he is soon fleeing for his life - once again. A riveting story of courage, hope and extraordinary adventure.
