Just in Case, by Meg Rosoff

Odd story. Very odd. Just (nee' David) has decided to hide from Fate, because he beleives Fate's out to get him. And maybe Fate is. I think it's a coming of age story, with a twist. I think it's coming of age in one's own mind, not just merely (!) in the ways that people think we must grow up. I also happen to think he's got some serious psychological issues. But a REALLY good story. REALLY good.

From the publisher blurb...

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.
