    Lol its really really cool :]

    This is my essay for the first book -cough-

    Tomorrow When the War Began

    Tomorrow When the War Began is the first of the epic Tomorrow series by John Marsden. It illustrates the issues faced by a group of teenagers whose country has been invaded. Their survival depends upon their friendship as it provides emotional support, it forces them to be courageous and they rescue each other Tomorrow When the War Began is demonstrates the significance of camaraderie in times of crisis.

    The group relies on each other heavily for emotional support throughout the novel. Fiona needs Ellie to sort out her relationship problems. This is evident at the end of the novel when Ellie is running from the petrol tanker and she begins, “floating away from the world that living people inhabit.” She returns to normality when Fiona desperately cries, “Oh Ellie, please!” Ellie is also remorseful for blowing up the lawnmower and hopes that the soldiers weren’t killed. When Robyn reveals that two of the soldiers are dead, Ellie has a panic attack. The group instantly comforts her; Lee “gripped her hand hard and Corrie “sat on her other side.” The support the group provides is integral because it keeps morale high and it keeps the characters from going insane.

    Courage is another significant reason the group is able to survive. When planning to blow up the bridge Homer deals the most dangerous job to Fiona – running in front of the Petrol Tankers checking for patrols at every corner. Ellie defines courage as “when you’re really scared but you still do it.” Fiona personifies this definition when she fulfills the job given to her by Homer. Another significant act of courage is when Corrie is shot; Homer rationalizes that, “seven people are better than six.’ He suggests that group should although, cruel leave Corrie at the Hospital and run. Kevin flatly refuses; instead he willingly offers to drive Corrie to the hospital despite knowing full well that he is facing possible death. This is not only courageous because he is sacrificing himself but also because he is standing up against a friend. In both cases had they been alone or with someone else they would have been most likely left to be captured.

    As the novel progresses, the group becomes more daring in their plans which place a higher value on their friendships as they often rescue each other. Lee wouldn’t have survived if Robin hadn’t carried him to safety. Robyn, who faints “when people even mention injections”, overcomes her fears and gives Lee the injections he needs to ensure that the wound doesn’t become infected. Ellie and her driving skills can also be attributed to Lee’s rescue. Her driving made them an “erratic target.” Another occasion is when Kevin comes to Corrie’s aid when she gets shot. He carries her all the way back to Ellie’s and offers to drive her to the hospital. In all of these cases, their friendship plays a vital role because without it they would have been captured.

    The friendships in Tomorrow When the War Began play a significant role in the group’s survival. This provides them with emotional support, it forces them to be courageous and they rescue each other. Without these strong bonds the group would have been captured very quickly.
