Reviews

'A modern Catcher in the Rye ... written with generosity and warmth but also with an edgy, unpredictable intelligence' - The Times 'Just in Case is brilliant. Meg Rosoff writes like a dream. Even the unbelievable was believable' - Sally Gardner, author of I, Coriander Praise for How I Live Now: 'That rare, rare thing, a first novel with a sustained, magical and utterly fauntless voice. I knew she could persuade me to believe almost anything' - Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time 'A crunchily perfect knock-out of a debut novel' - Guardian
