Product Description

Raw, passionate, freaky: it’s still got us buzzing ten years since it first shocked us. This incredible book – now an incredible film – is true romance wrapped up in dystopian militant horror. Fifteen-year-old Daisy has escaped New York for a summer, and she’s having the time of her life. She’s falling rapidly in love with her cousin Edmond, against the dreamy backdrop of the British countryside. Everything is perfect. Until a sudden and horrifying invasion by violent military forces, that is. Torn apart from Edmond, and fighting for survival, Daisy’s story is intense and terrible – in a totally beautiful way.

“A magical and utterly faultless voice.” Mark Haddon

This book contains some mature content.

Meg Rosoff was born in 1956 in Boston, USA. She studied at Harvard University and left for England in 1977 to enter St Martin’s School of Art, later returning to finish her degree at Harvard. She worked in New York City for 10 years in publishing and advertising, before moving to England.

She has written four novels for teenagers, as well as several picture books. Her first novel, How I Live Now, was published to great acclaim in 2004, winning the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, and shortlisted for both the Whibread Children’s Book Award and the Orange First Novel Prize.

Her second novel, Just in Case (2006), about a hunted 15-year-old boy, won the 2007 Carnegie Medal, and her third, What I Was was also shortlisted for several major awards. Her latest book, The Bride’s Farewell is her first historical novel, telling the tale of a nineteenth century girl who flees on the morning of her wedding.
