The Rest of Us Just Live Here is the newest teen book from Patrick Ness. I received an e-ARC of it to read/review/promote to my library kiddos. This book was so good, but so strange. It's hard to describe the story without really giving things away, so here is an awesome book trailer that does a far better job of it than I could.
My rating: 4 stars
Summary from goodreads:
What if you aren’t the Chosen One?
one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or
whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?
if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and
maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes
and blows up the high school. Again.
Because sometimes there are
problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you
just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.
Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions.
writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us
that there are many different types of remarkable.
