Fifteen-year-old New Yorker Daisy is sent to live in the English
countryside with cousins she's never even met. When England is
attacked and occupied by an unnamed enemy, the cousins find
themselves on their own. Power fails, system fail. As they grow
more isolated, the farm becomes a kind of Eden, with no rules.
Until the war arrives in their midst.
Daisy's is a
war story, a survival story, a love story-all told in the voice of
a subversive and witty teenager. This book crackles with anxiety
and with lust. It's a stunning and unforgettable first novel that
captures the essence of the age of terrorism: how we live now.
