The day David Case saves his brother’s life, his whole world changes. Suddenly, every moment is fizzing with significance, full of what ifs? He must hide; become an entirely new person to escape Fate… if he can. Will changing his name, befriending an astrophysicist and gaining an imaginary pet be enough? Bewildered and obsessive, he'll try anything to survive.

Just in Case is a daring, powerful and compelling read bringing the spirit of the film Donnie Darko to the heart of middle England.

Justin Case is convinced fate has in for him.

And he’s right.

After finding his younger brother teetering on the edge of his balcony, fifteen-year-old David Case realizes the fragility of life and senses impending doom. Without looking back, he changes his name to Justin and assumes a new identity, new clothing and new friends, and dares to fall in love with the seductive Agnes Day. With his imaginary dog Boy in tow, Justin struggles to fit into his new role and above all, to survive in a world where tragedy is around every corner. He’s got to be prepared, just in case.
