Behind the Gates
Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
War and destruction is all 13 year old Louisa has ever known. She is overjoyed when she learns she has been chosen to attend a special boarding school hundreds of miles from home where the land is still unspoiled and the air is pure. It's even better news when she learns her parents have found a way to ensure that her best friend Maddy will accompany her. Though Louisa is reluctant to give up her cell phone and have no outside communication or even the Internet, she does enjoy the survival skills she and her classmates learn and being able to camp in the great outdoors. However, her friend Maddy is a little suspicious and discovers that the school has picked only girls whose parents can afford to pay a healthy ransom, with the money going to finance the war for the side of the opposition. With their other two roommates, they decide they must escape and warn the world. How far will they get?
This is the first of four of the Tomorrow Girls series.
