How I Live Now


By Meg Rosoff


Daisy is sent to England to live in the countryside with her cousins and aunt who shes never met. Suddenly England is attacked and occupied, but it all seems very far away from Daisy and her cousins in their isolated town. But when the house is taken by the army and the cousins separated, Daisy must find a way to reunite them (and survive at the same time).


Likes:


A.     great writing


B.     great characters


C.     great plot


D.     The author is not afraid to defy conventionality or challenge readers, and nothing is sugarcoated.


 Dislikes: None
