Ellie is a very likable adventure hero. She’s honest, she has her faults, and she notices just about everything around her. There’s a lot to notice – 7 teenagers trapped in the wilderness while their homeland is invaded by a foreign army. Ellie and her friends have some amazing survival skills, but they’re still able to remain teenagers in the way they talk and act around each other.

My only real complaint is that some of their guerrilla exploits are too unbelievable, especially the attack against the bridge and the daring front-loader rescue mission. Overall, this is a very strong beginning to an exciting series, with hints of even more action and possibly more mature themes in the next book.
