Just In Case by Meg Rosoff
A boy called David Case has a 1 year old brother who almost falls out of a window and as a result of that David becomes obsessed with the fact that fate is out to kill him. He thinks he is doomed, and changes himself, including his name and assumes a new identity (he becomes Justin Case, see what he did there?) to try and escape fate. He meets Agnes Day who is weird and interesting and who he falls in love with. Fate is watching though, and is ready to make life as difficult as possible for David. Great scene at the airport where it all blows up!
This is a great book. I liked everything about it.
