Praise

“When How I Live Now came out, it stunned, amazed, and won all sorts of literary awards. . . . This second novel Just In Case, shows that it was no beginner’s luck. . . . Meg Rosoff is the Queen of Weird.”
—Los Angeles Times
 
“What shimmers in Rosoff’s novels is a very unusual and courageous confrontation with nihilism, which, like Beckett, she makes funny, rather than futile. . . . A modern Catcher in the Rye.”
—The Times (London)
 
“Rosoff examines the idea of fate through minutely observed, concatenated catastrophes and the intersection of exquisitely drawn characters. . . . Funny, ironic, magically real; stunning.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
“Extraordinary and original . . . this sophisticated meditation on death, madness, and sexuality is powerful and tenaciously haunting.”
—The Sunday Times (London)
 
“Intelligent, ironic, and darkly funny, makes nods to Samuel Beckett and existentialism.”
—Time Out
 
“Surreal . . . hilarious.”
—Cosmopolitan
 
“Brilliantly original.”
—Marie Claire
