The book how i live now, by Meg Rosoff, is the riveting tale of Daisy from America. After her failed life with her father and stepmother, Daisy is sent to live with her cousins and aunt in England. Soon after she arrives, Daisy's aunt goes away on business, and while she's away London is bombed. As the teenagers struggle to survive in this wartime environment, they bond together inseperably, and Daisy discovers her true self.
This book was a brilliant page-turner that I was barely able to put down. Daisy's viewpoints and attitude give her a striking realness, and the changes that she goes through during the war are astounding.
