Okay, so I have to say that I LOVED the book How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. Seriously one of my favorites. It’s one of those stories that sticks with you well after you read it. So if you haven’t read it, you definitely should!!!
Goodreads Blurb for How I Live Now:
Fifteen-year-old Daisy is sent from Manhattan to England to visit her aunt and cousins she’s never met: three boys near her age, and their little sister. Her aunt goes away on business soon after Daisy arrives. The next day bombs go off as London is attacked and occupied by an unnamed enemy.
As power fails, and systems fail, the farm becomes more isolated. Despite the war, it’s a kind of Eden, with no adults in charge and no rules, a place where Daisy’s uncanny bond with her cousins grows into something rare and extraordinary. But the war is everywhere, and Daisy and her cousins must lead each other into a world that is unknown in the scariest, most elemental way.
Well, yesterday, I finally came across the movie trailer for it (yes, it’s been made into movie—SQUEEEEE). Which, I hope comes to Michigan so I can see it. But because it’s one of my favorite books, I wanted to share the movie trailer with you…
