TheTomorrowSeries was a series of books aimed at {{young adult}}s by Australian author John Marsden. They are written from the perspective of rural teenager Ellie Linton. She and a small group of friends head into an unexplored area of bush for a week-long holiday, and return to find that their houses are abandoned and their animals are dead or dying. They soon realise that Australia was invaded on Commemoration Day, and they are among the very small number of people who have avoided being taken prisoner.

** Also, under the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War they shouldn't have been tried at all; they should have been treated as francs-tireurs and sent to PoW camps, not executed - though as they failed to wear any sort of uniform it is possible to argue they do not fall under the protections, depending on whether Protocol I was ratified by the invading state or not.

Added DiffLines:

* ShellShockedVeteran: In ''The Other Side of Dawn,'' many of Ellie's neighbors, having come back from detention camps, show signs of PTSD, and Ellie herself has clearly been changed by the war...not always for the better. This becomes more apparent in the sequel trilogy, ''The Ellie Chronicles.''

Added DiffLines:

* WriterOnBoard: Marsden becomes a lot more overt in the ''Ellie Chronicles'' in using his characters as mouthpieces for political and philosophical ideas, and there are lots of references to (ie recommendations of) books and poems.
