BC: How I Live Now By: Meg Rosoff

1: MY Trip to England

2: "When I opened my eyes there was this welcoming committee staring at me through the window and in it were four kids, and a goat and a couple of dogs and in the background I saw some cats scooting around after a bunch of ducks" (5)

3: "I thought how strange it was to be lying in someone else's bed thousands of miles from home surrounded by grayish light and a weird kind of quiet you never get in New York City" (10)

4: "The moment she left was exactly the moment we all started skewing off into crisis" (24)

5: "A bomb went off in the middle of a big train station in London the day after Aunt Penn went to Oslo and something like seven or seventy thousand people got killed" (24)

6: "I was desperate to tell Leah about all this stuff and how totally great it was to have no grown-ups around telling you what to do all the time" (42)

7: "Edmond just lay there with his eyes closed I felt a little disappointed and a little relieved all at the same time...then he kissed me on the mouth so gently and sweetly, and then we kissed again, only not quite so sweetly" (45

8: "It turned out that we were being sequestered which had to be explained to me since I'm not exactly in the habit of having people take over a perfectly private house to send the inhabitants off to live god knows where" (66)

9: "It hadn't occurred to me that we might be separated, but do you know anyone, even in the middle of a war, who's going to take on a group of five kids especially ones like us" (67)

10: "About every two or three miles we passed through checkpoints where our driver had to stop and show papers to a bunch of guys with machine guns who didn't speak fabulous English" (73)

11: "When Major McEvoy came home later that night I accosted him the second he stepped through the door, demanding that he say whether Edmond and Issac has been moved somewhere" (76)

12: "What impressed me was how simple it seemed to be to throw a whole country into chaos" (87)

13: "I worked with eight other army people including three soldiers and their wives and two other civilians" (99)

14: Put yourselves in our shoes for a moment, walking into this deserted place on a glowering gray September day when it should be filled with life, but what you find is nothing" (140)

15: Altogether I found nine men, three women and five children" (142)

16: "During all this time I was in touch with Edmond. Strange as it sounds, he visited me, not exactly like god visiting Moses or angels telling Mary she's knocked up with the Christ Child, but come to think of it not completely unlike that either" (89)

17: "I knew Edmond would come back to us if he could. I tried doing the thing they do with dogs in the movies, saying JET FETCH EDMOND! and pointing in the general direction of the Wide World" (160)

18: "Hello" it said again, and then in a pleading tone: Whoever you are, please say something. And then I recognized the voice. Hello, I said. It's Daisy" (163)

19: I ended up in a hospital, where they kept me for months after I arrived back in New York" (167)
