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? Survival is an art form. Ellie is a survivor because she's honest, loyal and incurably brave. And sometimes she's lucky. But when her luck runs out, her incurable bravery can get her into trouble…and back into war. Internationally bestselling author John Marsden knows both the hearts of teenagers and the heart of war. As he did in his legendary Tomorrow series, in Incurable Marsden shows us the ways that human nature and the call to war are tragically and defiantly intertwined.
