How I Live Now

How I Live Now - Meg Rosoff A 1001 CBYMRBYGU.I don’t know exactly what I was expecting with this book, but it took me way off the track. I suppose I thought this would be an Angst-y Teen book, and it is that, filled with prerequisite (though not, in the book’s defense, of an in-your-face sort) Eating Disorders and Mean Step-Parent Difficulties and Young Troubled Love. But somewhere along the way, Rosoff threw in a Small Nuclear War. I liked and I didn’t like this book. I liked our main character’s perspective on the world. I liked her relationships with her extended family. I was not crazy about the Personal Problems and, even less, the Societal Problems; these seemed like they were tossed into the salad unnecessarily.
