What I Was: A Novel: Meg Rosoff: Books

What young person hasn't wished to ditch school and live a Robinson-Crusoe idyll? In this book, a boy from a miserable boarding school forms an unlikely friendship with a self-sufficient orphan. This is a beautiful book written by an award-winning novelist who respects but never sentimentalizes her subjects.
