Meg Rosoff

London-based Meg Rosoff, who is Massachusetts-raised and Harvard-educated, has just won Britain's most prestigious prize for children's literature, the CILIP Carnegie Medal. She won for her second young-adult novel, "Just in Case."

Rosoff's first novel, "How I Live Now," was a surprise bestseller and winner of the 2004 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. I wrote a profile of her then, at a time of seriously worrisome health news in her life, and it's good to see that she's still writing, still selling books, and still winning prizes.
