Weekly Reads: The Rest of Us Just Live Here

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?

The 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?

What 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.

Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.
