Just In Case is written by the fab author, Meg Rosoff.

The story starts when David Case's little brother Charlie, almost jumps out of their tower block window in Luton.

From then on, David's life is full of 'what ifs'.

He gets worried that fate is out to get him and starts to make changes to himself to try and hide from fate. He starts by changing is name to Justin, hence the books title Just In Case, and changes his clothes. He decides to run away from home to protect his loved ones, and all manner of things, all in the name of fate.

On his journey many things happen, a plane crashes into Luton airport, just meters from where he is standing, he even falls in love with an older girl called Agnes. Eventually the book ends, but with what, I cannot tell you!

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for an engaging read. I cannot wait to read more of her books, and review them on theSprout.
