The Year My Life Broke
enlarge image save image print page share this

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 life.

Funny, gripping and full of surprises, The Year My Life Broke could be the most real book your read this year.

WARNING: This book is not a fantasy. It contains no superheroes, wizards, dragons, time-travel, aliens or magic.

Author Information

John Marsden grew up in three states of Australia, and now lives in Victoria. John loved school so much that he started his own. Or, he hated school so much that he started his own in 2006 so that other kids wouldn't have to go through the suffering he experienced. 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. John is one of Australia's biggest selling and most awarded authors.
