As a girl, Daisy Caldwell wanted nothing more than to emulate her beloved mother, who dazzled crowds with her stage performances. However, when her mother died in a tragic accident Daisy had to grow up quickly, and she chose to strike out in a new direction and train as a nurse. By spring 1940, she has grown to relish her vocation, but as the war takes its tell on her friends and relatives she realises that she may not be as professional as she's assumed. Meanwhile Daisy's eldest sister Immy is finally finding her own niche as official driver to Royal Engineers officer Captain Grayson Beckett, while the middle Caldwell girl, Elsle, is content to watch the progress of the war from the sidelines, waiting for the birth of her first child - until her new husband returns on a hospital ship from Dunkirk...

In 1914, Daisy lives in the quiet New Zealand valley where her family has farmed for generations. A cherished only child with an adored older cousin, and surrounded by a sprawling extended family, her world seems a warm and safe one. But the Great War is casting its long shadow over New Zealand. Daisy watches in growing fear as more and more of the men leave to fight in Europe, and the War strikes ever closer to the heart of her family. Daisy's War opens five years after the end of A Second Chance. The settings and many of the characters from the earlier books are revisited, while a new generation is introduced: that of Amy's grandchildren.

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.

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 Bestselling author Meg Rosoff has received great critical acclaim since the publication of her first novel How I Live Now (winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize).

Saturday, February 15, 2003. Henry Perowne, a successful neurosurgeon, stands at his bedroom window before dawn and watches a plane – ablaze with fire like a meteor – arcing across the London sky. Over the course of the following day, unease gathers about Perowne, as he moves amongst hundreds of thousands of anti-war protestors in the post-9/11 streets. A minor car accident brings him into confrontation with Baxter, a fidgety, aggressive man, who to Perowne’s professional eye appears to be profoundly unwell. But it is not until Baxter makes a sudden appearance at the Perowne family home that Henry’s earlier fears seem about to be realised.
