HOW I LIVE NOW
Heralded by some as the next best adult crossover novel since Mark Haddons The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, who himself has given the book a thunderously good quote, this authors debut is undoubtedly stylish, readable and fascinating. Rosoffs story begins in modern day London, slightly in the future, and as its heroine has a 15-year-old Manhattanite called Daisy. Shes picked up at the airport by Edmond, her English cousin, a boy in whose life she is destined to become elaborately entwined. Daisy is staying for the summer in her Aunt Penns country farmhouse with Edmond and her other cousins.
