not a one-hit wonder.,
This review is from: Just in Case (Hardcover)
The pressure that is put on an author to follow up a highly-acclaimed
book--and How I Live Now, despite what some people might say, is that--is
no doubt immense; but somehow, Meg Rossof has managed it.
And she's managed it--whisper it--WELL.
As a teenager, it's refreshing to find a writing voice of this clarity, such
a talented writer of prose instead of predictable plots and endless stale dialogue.
Just In Case makes for an engaging read, a plot full of twists and turns, and a protagonist
whose sanity seems to balance on a knife edge. Despite this, some of the puns can
wear a little thin, and upon the first read very little of the book actually makes sense,
if you can approach it with an open mind, you'll soon be dazzled by its brilliance.
