How I Live Now - Meg Rosoff Well, boo. The trailer for this movie sent me racing to the book, and the first half really had me hooked. The main character's voice was witty and charming, and despite her eating disorder and cousin lovin, she was entirely relatable. The twins and darling Piper were on the sweet, fey end of the spectrum, but were no less lovely. I was holding my breath all the way up until the phone rang... and then plop. What an ending. What? That ending?! My credulity in tatters, the last chapters seemed like a dream sequence, or some cruel Choose-Your-Own-Adventure mistake. After the inch by inch trek through the forest, the ever disinterested father being able to summon his daughter across the Atlantic, during a war, while seemingly abandoning Piper to her fate did not seem possible. Or reasonable. Or satisfying. This book gets five stars until the phone rings. Then, bah humbug.
