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.
