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? 'Unusual and engrossing' - Independent 'Outstanding' - The Times 'Intelligent, ironic and darkly funny' - Sunday Times Bestselling author Meg Rosoff has received great critical acclaim since the publication of her first novel How I Live Now (winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize). Her other novels, The Bride's Farewell and What I Was, which was described by The Times as 'Samuel Beckett on ecstasy', are also available from Puffin. Follow Meg on Twitter @megrosoff.

  1. Fantastisk!
    Josefine, 20 juni 2011

    Önskar att fler upptäcker den här fantastiska boken som jag snubblade över av en slump. Jag läste den som vuxen och det fungerade utmärkt. Spännande, gripande och smart.

    Läs den, gammal som ung!

'A modern Catcher in the Rye ... written with generosity and warmth but also with an edgy, unpredictable intelligence' -- The Times 'Just in Case is brilliant. Meg Rosoff writes like a dream. Even the unbelievable was believable' -- Sally Gardner, author of I, Coriander Praise for How I Live Now: 'That rare, rare thing, a first novel with a sustained, magical and utterly fauntless voice. I knew she could persuade me to believe almost anything' -- Mark Haddon, author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time 'A crunchily perfect knock-out of a debut novel' -- Guardian
