Winner of the 2009 Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in Young Adult literature.

A highly anticipated follow-up from the best-selling author of Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca, both highly acclaimed productions available from Bolinda Audio.

Taylor Markham is now a senior at the Jellicoe School, and has been made leader of the boarders. She is responsible for keeping the upper hand in the territory wars with the townies, and the cadets who camp on the edge of the school's property over summer. She has to keep her students safe and the territories enforced and to deal with Jonah Griggs - the leader of the cadets and someone she'd rather forget. But what she needs to do, more than anything, is unravel the mystery of her past and find her mother - who abandoned her on the Jellicoe Road six years before. The only connection to her past, Hannah, the woman who found her, has now disappeared, too, and he only clue Taylor has about Hannah and her mother's past is a partially written manuscript about a group of five kids from the Jellicoe School, 20 years ago.

    " I enjoyed this mind-bending YA novel but I did find it somewhat difficult to read. The author is intentionally vague and misleading through much of the story, leaving the reader to try and puzzle out what exactly is going on! (It reminded me a little of "No Passenger's Beyond this Point"). While this strategy works okay in this book, it did leave me a bit confused about some of the characters and where they fit in. I think the author might have made it almost TOO clever. This is a YA book but there a (fairly mild) sex scene, therefore I would only recommend it for older teens. It is set in Australia, which isn't glaringly obvious in the beginning, and due to some colloquialisms, also adds a little confusion. Good book but not great and I would recommend with reservations. "

    " Incredible read. Kind of like a puzzle. Intriguing and memorable characters revealed bit by bit in layers. Set in Australia. Printz award winner (one that I liked). "

    " I can't believe this won the Printz award (Newberry equivalent for teenagers), giving a stamp of approval to frequent "f" word usage, teen sex and teen pregnancy. There are many good things about the novel: an interesting & compelling story, a message of the importance of enduring relationships, coming of age theme, but with all the angst and approval of poor values it carries I would discourage any teen I care about from reading it. "

    " Such a sad book with so much emotion. Hard to get into it at first but then you can't stop reading it. "
