How I Live Now

"Every war has turning points and every person too."   In Meg Rosoff's How I Live Now fifteen-year-old Daisy is sent to England to visit her aunt and cousins she's never even met.  When her aunt is away on business London is attacked and occupied by an unknown enemy.  When the country's power fails, the farm Daisy and her cousins live on is increasingly isolated.  That doesn't seem to bother them though, as Daisy and her cousin Edmond are falling in love.  But it isn't long before their limits are tested far beyond what anyone could have imagined.  KR
