Meg Rosoff has just won the Carnegie Award for children's writing for her latest novel Just in Case. This prestigious award is chosen by a panel of U.K. librarians. You can read more about the prize here. I haven't yet read Just in Case, but I absolutely loved Rosoff's first novel, How I Live Now for its originality, its complicated human relationships and the ending (which of course I won't give away). Though it was originally published as a YA novel, it's one of those crossover books that totally appeals to an adult audience. But my recommendation comes with a dire warning - once you've read it, you'll go into a bit of a reading funk, trying to find a follow-up that even comes close to being as satisfying. We'll be publishing Rosoff's new novel, What I Was next February.
