How I Live Now
Daisy is a troubled New York City teenager with a distant father and a wicked stepmother she calls "Davina the Diabolical." When she is sent to London to stay with an aunt and cousins she's never met, hostile enemies invade England. Her aunt goes abroad on a peace mission, while Daisy and her three cousins, with whom she forges a remarkable relationship, must survive on their own. This poignant story is told in an honest, first-person narrative and filled with humor, love, and the carnage of war. Timely subject matter for today's teens.
