Summary

The downloadable audiobook edition of Meg Rosoff's charming coming-of-age novel, How I Live Now, set over a summer of love and destruction. Read by the actress Amber Sealey.

American girl Daisy has had a troubled background, and is sent from New York to stay with her charmingly shambolic family of British cousins, who she has never met. They are Isaac, Edmond, Osbert, and Piper. And two dogs and a goat.

Daisy has never met anyone quite like them before and, as a dreamy English summer progresses, Daisy finds herself caught in a timeless bubble as she slowly begins to piece herself together with the the help of her super-eccentric and slightly psychic cousins.

Not only does Daisy get better as she easily succumbs to the charms of their adult-free rural home, but she finds herself falling in love with one of her cousins in this intense, gorgeous, summery bubble where they live a timeless existence. So timeless, that when war breaks out they barely seem to notice....

Daisy's life is changed forever and the world is too.

Amazing

I watched the film before listening to this and I can say they're a little different. However I love this and even though she falls in love with her cousin it's still fantastically brilliant!! I would totally recommend this!!
