Review

A vague, yet moving apocalyptic tale set in not-too-distant-future England. Fifteen-year-old Daisy is sent from New York to England to live with her aunt and four cousins. There are brief mentionings that all is not right with the world,  but Daisy seems to have an initially awkward, but pleasant time at her aunt's rural house. When her aunt is called away on business, however, things take a turn for the worse. We're never clear on the details about the invaders or what the conflict is, just that Daisy and her cousins are forced to flee their idyllic farm for places unknown. The movie based on this book was recently released on DVD and I'm in line to watch it.
