Meg Rosoff reviews Andreas Steinhofel's The Center of the World for the Guardian. Like Rosoff's How I Live Now, The Center of the World is one of those books that doesn't easily define itself as either YA or adult fiction. Of this Rosoff writes,
- "As an adult reader, the trick seems to be to find books on the subject that live up to Maurice Sendak's pronouncement: 'I don't write for children. I don't write for adults. I just write.'"
