How I Live Now is an original and poignant book by Meg Rosoff. How I Live Now is the powerful and engaging story of Daisy, the precocious New Yorker and her English cousin Edmond, torn apart as war breaks out in London, from the multi award-winning Meg Rosoff. How I Live Now has been adapted for the big screen by Kevin Macdonald, starring Saoirse Ronan as Daisy and releases in 2013. Fifteen-year-old Daisy thinks she knows all about love. Her mother died giving birth to her, and now her dad has sent her away for the summer, to live in the English countryside with cousins she's never even met. There she'll discover what real love is: something violent, mysterious and wonderful. There her world will be turned upside down and a perfect summer will explode into a million bewildering pieces. How will Daisy live then? "Fresh, honest, rude, funny. I put it down with tears on my face". (Julie Myerson, Guardian). "Assured, powerful, engaging ...you will want to read everything that Rosoff is capable of writing". (Observer). "An unforgettable adventure". (Sunday Times). Bestselling author Meg Rosoff has received great critical acclaim since the publication of her first novel How I Live Now (winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize). Her other novels, Just in Case (winner of the 2007 Carnegie Medal), The Bride's Farewell and What I Was which was described by The Times as 'Samuel Beckett on ecstasy', are also available from Puffin.

I don't really know what to think about this book... Maybe the plot, characters and the writing didn't work for me, but I don't really know for sure.

“One of my all-time favourites!!”

I'm old enough to be the grandmother of some of the reviewers, but I LOVED this book. I'm left wondering if the 1-star reviewers read the same book as me! As with all the best cross-over fiction, I never... More
