Just in Case is the story of a boy who wants desperately to escape fate. He runs and runs from fate, but can't ever seem to go quick enough to escape. First he changes his name from David to Justin, with the mentality that he can trick fate into forgetting his existence. He changes his physical state, his wardrobe, even his friends, but all in vain. Fate is not so easily fooled. As the book progresses Justin's fate plays out in many unexpected and refreshingly peculiar ways.
