How I Live Now

How I Live Now is Meg Rosoff’s British Guardian Children’s Fiction prize winner about what is, essentially, World War III. I have yet to read the book, but watched the movie last weekend out of curiosity. What I wasn’t expecting was the casual and explicit sexual relationship between cousins and the nonchalance that accompanies it. The book received many rave reviews- did I mention it won the Michael L. Printz Award as well? Obviously, there was incredible backlash against the cousins’ relationship. Should something like this be in a school?
