Read an extract from: Just in Case
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 ifs, 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?
