Overview

THE WAR IS OVER BUT THE FIGHTING GOES ON....

For Ellie Linto, fighting is supposed to be a thing of the past. The raids, the ambushes, the gunfire—she wants it all behind her. Being back on her family's farm is what's supposed to make the terrible things that happened during the war all worth while. It's where she belongs.

But the war won't let her go. A devastating tragedy hits when she least expects it, shattering the peace. Now she must struggle to survive. It's a new kind of fight—with some enemies on the other side of the border, and some very close to home.

WHILE I LIVE is a tale of destruction, carnage, and courage—the powerful story of one girl fighting the odds with all the ammunition she has.

"Ellie's grief is palpable and heartbreaking, and Marsden's always talented touch for constructing combat tensions is brilliantly balanced here with Ellie's need to live in a recovering world."—Kirkus Reviews

"A wonderfully gripping and suspenseful book."—Library Media Connection

JOHN MARSDEN is the internationally bestselling author of the Tomorrow Series, Winter, Letters from the Inside, and So Much to Tell You. He lived in Australia.

Meet the Author


John Marsden accidentally put himself through the perfect training to become a novelist.

He read vast numbers of books, acquired a love of language, and became insatiably curious about other people. He also had a variety of jobs, 32 at the last count, including working in abattoirs, hospitals, morgues and a haunted house.

In 1985, rather to his own surprise, he found himself teaching English in the Australian bush, at Timbertop School. Noticing a complete lack of interest in reading among his Year 9 students he tried his hand at writing a short novel that he thought they might enjoy.

The rest is history. John Marsden, author of the Tomorrow series and Ellie Chronicles, is now the world's most successful author of teenage fiction. He has sold a million and a half books worldwide, and has won awards in Europe, America and Australia. His first love however is still teaching, and he spends most of his time running writing camps at his property, near Hanging Rock, Victoria.

    Good read.

    Not quite as 'edge of your seat' exciting as the Tomorrow books, but still a good story with plenty going on.

    Really a Great Book!!!!

    While I Live is one of the better books I have read lately, and I read a lot. I had not read a single book in almost a week, then my friend finds this one and I could not put it down!!! I stayed up over half the night, continueously forgetting that I had planned to stop to get some sleep at the next chapter. All in all, it was a marvelous book that I believe readers of all ages (mainly teens though) will enjoy. With love, action and current day problems, it was definately worth my time, and it will be worth yours. :)

    Really great story

    It's a really good storyline - not quite as much action as the Tomorrow series, but just as much problems. Ellie must be one of the unluckiest kids to ever reach the pages of a book!
