Description - The Year My Life Broke by John Marsden

From the mutli-award winning and bestselling author of the Tomorrow series.

"Australia's king of young adult fiction" The Australian

You move into the most boring street in the most boring town in Australia. Tarrawagga is a hole. Its only ambition is to be a crater, and it has every chance of getting there.

The last thing you expect is to have action all around you, dangerous strangers in the backyard and bullets flying past your ears.

At your new school, everyone thinks you're the biggest loser in Grade 6. Little do they know. When they realise the truth, teachers and students alike are in for the shock of their lives.

Funny, gripping and full of surprises, The Year My Life Broke could be the most real book you read this year.
Warning: This book is not a fantasy. It contains no superheroes, wizards, dragons, time travel, aliens or magic.

Notable Book for the Children's Book Council of Australia Awards's Young Readers 2014

Author Biography - 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.

Candlebark is in a beautiful forest near Hanging Rock, and is John's proudest achievement. John has also published more than 40 books, including Tomorrow When the War Began, which was made into a highly successful movie, Looking for Trouble, Staying Alive in Year Five, Creep Street and Cool School.
