It's been called "a modern day Catcher in the Rye", but it's actually even better than that. I've reread this over and over until I had to buy a second copy, and I hope I'll have to get a third and a fourth before Fate finally catches up to me. I treasure the cast of characters I met in this novel. They are fictional people who have a place in my heart forever. That's what a brilliant writer is capable of.
My least favorite Rosoff novel. "How I Live Now" & "What I Was" were much better.
I read many reviews in attempt to help me discover what exactly I wanted to say about Just In Case. It's extremely hard to place this book and I am still trying to understand its message a month after I turned the last page and I can come only to the conclusion that I am not supposed to fully comprehend it. Since completion have not been able to stop thinking about Just In Case. One of the reasons I am writing this review is probably with the hope that it will stop haunting my mind! When I first began reading I thought perhaps the book revolved around the human desire to live forever or fear of the unknown. David seemed to be terrified of pain and suffering. I also wondered, like most readers, it seems, whether David was crazy or schizophrenic. This idea too vanished after some time and I was once again left wondering what David was, what I was being told, and why it felt vaguely familiar. Whatever it was, Meg Rosoff has managed to compile a book like no one has ever before...
