"You jam on the brakes and stop the ute right at your front door. You jump out. Not for the first time you run into a house that could be full of guns, with death waiting for you. You don't even think of that until you're crossing the threshold... You already know what you're going to find. Underneath the fear and horror and panic there's a cold realisation that Gavin's body will be somewhere in the house. You can picture what those bullets will have done to his little body."

It is a time of profound change for Ellie Linton. Enemies are everywhere. Some come crawling over the hills; others drive in and knock on the front door. Sometimes her friends are there and sometimes they are not. Ellie fights every inch of the way. But when courage and imagination are not enough, when she is trapped and helpless, Ellie must face the end of life as she knows it... standing alone, sustained only by her own strength.

      Comments about Incurable:

      This is a book I read when it first came out. I've lent it to so many people it's disappeared from my shelves, so it was time for another copy. Just as good on the second, third and I suspect even the fourth reading.

      Comment on this review

      John Marsden

      John Marsden grew up in three states of Australia, and now lives in Victoria. John loved school so much that he started his own. Or, he hated school so much that he started his own in 2006 so that other kids wouldn't have to go through the suffering he experienced. Candlebark is in a beautiful forest near Hanging Rock, and is John's proudest achievement.

      John has published more than 40 books, including the bestselling The Tomorrow Series. Tomorrow When the War Began was made into a highly successful movie in 2010.

      John is one of Australia's biggest selling and most awarded authors.
