Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The journey to Stratton isn't an easy trip, especially when the enemy's headquarters lie somewhere along the way. And that's exactly where Ellie and her friends unwittingly find themselves. With only five of them against hundreds of armed soldiers, escape seems like a suicide mission. But Stratton is where Ellie's grandmother lives, so the journey must be made -- even though the odds aren't good.
Ellie must summon all of her courage and guerrilla instincts to survive the latest high-stakes installment of the action-packed Tomorrow series.

The whole thing was surreal, and you had to accept that as early as possible, or you were in trouble.

Now, in the relative safety of Grandma’s, we were

I’m just not as good as you or Homer. I’m OK over a short distance.’ ‘So she fell into your arms and violins started playing?’ He shrugged again. ‘Did I mention she was naked?’ ‘No, you didn’t actually.’ ‘Oh. Well she was.’ 177 He was so nervous it would have been funny in a different situation. But I was furiously
