Just in Case (Paperback) Meg Rosoff (author)


Winner of the 2007 Carnegie Medal, the captivating and darkly-comic novel Just in Case is a thrilling coming-of-age story – described by The Times as a modern The Catcher in the Rye – from the bestselling author of How I Live Now Meg Rosoff.

Every minute of every day, a million things happen . . . 

The day David Case saves his brother’s life, his whole world changes. Suddenly, every moment is fizzing with what-if’s, and it’s up to David to outwit fate. Or try to. He changes his name and the way he looks. He leaves home and finds himself caught up in a series of strange and extraordinary adventures. He even falls in love.

But is David really in control of his life? And if he isn’t – who is?
