How I Live Now How I Live Now is an original and poignant book by Meg Rosoff, now a film tie-in edition to celebrate the release of the major film starring Saoirse Ronan.

How I Live Now is the powerful and engaging story of Daisy, the precocious New Yorker and her English cousin Edmond, torn apart as war breaks out in London, from the multi award-winning Meg Rosoff. How I Live Now has been adapted for the big screen by Kevin Macdonald.

Fifteen-year-old Daisy thinks she knows all about love. Her mother died giving birth to her, and now her dad has sent her away for the summer, to live in the English countryside with cousins she's never even met.

There she'll discover what real love is: something violent, mysterious and wonderful. There her world will be turned upside down and a perfect summer will explode into a million bewildering pieces.

How will Daisy live then?

  • I don't understand?

    By Chloe bang aloud
    I got this book after watching the movie , I was obsessed with movie , this book is nothing like the movie and it jumps no speech marks it's almost as if child has wrote it , not worth the money.
  • A very diary-esque book!

    I decided to read this book after seeing the trailer for the movie. I thought the story looked captivating and the characters interesting. When I first began I found the writing style a little confusing as the author doesn't use speech marks or proper punctuation. Over time however this became less if an issue but I was frustrated at how little character development there was in the first part of the book. I think it really could have been an amazing book but the characters weren't developed enough and the writing was at some points confusing! Overall I would buy the sample first ad see how you enjoy the writing style! For me, I give this book 6/10 :)
