"Australia's king of young adult fiction" The Australian
Last week, Mrs Hazell got us to write a story called 'The Biggest Disaster I Ever Caused'. I should have asked for extra time to write it. I've got a feeling that by tomorrow I'll be able to do a whole new version.
Tony and his friends are seriously bored with their lives. They go 'looking for trouble'. But when a strange and secretive family move in down the road, Tony begins to wonder whether trouble hasn't come looking for him. And once trouble finds him - it doesn't want to let him go!

About the Author
John Marsden lives at the Tye Estate, just outside of Melbourne, where he opened a school called Candlebark in January 2006. The school currently has 52 students, ranging from Prep to Year 7.
John Marsden has written more than 40 books, mostly for teenagers and children, including Tomorrow When the War Began, So Much to Tell You, and Letters from the Inside. He has sold over five million books worldwide, and has won every major award in Australia for young people's fiction.
South of Darkness, written for adults, won the Christina Stead Award for Best Novel of 2015. In August 2019, John's newest book, The Art of Growing Up, a non-fiction work about education and parenting, will be published.
John's passionate interest in education led him to start two schools, Candlebark, on a vast forested estate near Romsey Victoria, and Alice Miller, at Macedon, a Year 7-12 school with a particular emphasis on the creative arts. The two schools enrol 380 students in 2019.
