Cover TextDaisy wird von ihrem Vater nach England geschickt. Sie soll den Sommer bei ihren exzentrischen Verwandten auf dem Land verbringen. Das alte verwinkelte Haus, die Hunde, der Garten mit dem verwitterten Steinengel - all das ist ihr als New Yorkerin völlig fremd und doch hat Daisy sich noch nie irgendwo so geborgen gefühlt. Und noch nie zuvor hat sie Menschen wie Edmond, Isaak, Osbert und die kleine Piper getroffen. Vor allem niemand wie ihren Cousin Edmond. Es verspricht ein perfekter Sommer zu werden. Ein Sommer, der ihr Leben verändern wird. Aber auch ein Sommer, der die Welt verändern wird.How I Live Now is an original and poignant book by Meg Rosoff
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, starring Saoirse Ronan as Daisy and releases in 2013.
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?
'Fresh, honest, rude, funny. I put it down with tears on my face' - Julie Myerson, Guardian
'Assured, powerful, engaging . . . you will want to read everything that Rosoff is capable of writing' - Observer
'An unforgettable adventure' - Sunday Times
