Justin Case is convinced fate has in for him.
And he's right.

After finding his younger brother teetering on the edge of his balcony, fifteen-year-old David Case realizes the fragility of life and senses impending doom. Without looking back, he changes his name to Justin and assumes a new identity, new clothing and new friends, and dares to fall in love with the seductive Agnes Day. With his imaginary dog Boy in tow, Justin struggles to fit into his new role and above all, to survive in a world where tragedy is around every corner. He's got to be prepared, just in case.

I was not blown away by this book (as I was with "How I Live Now"), but it really has some wonderful moments. Rosoff really captures that feeling of adolescence that "something is wrong". Her writing style is wonderfully unique.
Unlike a lot of YA these days,there will be no movie versions or serializations because the narrative can only be captured in this format. Rosoff's books are short packets of really great writing that stand for themselves.
