A Modern Catcher In The Rye

The way she writes now - Books - Times Online

Amanda Craig reviewed Meg Rosoff's new novel in yesterday's Times:

Just in Case is a cooler, more cerebral novel than How I Live Now, deliberately shorn of the passionate romantic ardour that made Daisy�s tale so attractive, and written in the third person not the first. It is unlikely to gain the huge popular appeal of Rosoff�s debut. Yet in describing the existential anguish of adolescence, and its unique mixture of absurdity and anger, it is a modern The Catcher in the Rye.
