The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Review: It seems that Patrick Ness knows what its like inside of a teens mind. While reading this book I felt as if Ness broke into my mind and wrote one of the best books that teens have ever wanted.
Each character and storyline, will drive you nuts with the humor behind them and the thoughtfulness.
I’m still having a hard time describing this book and all that has come with it.
Just the different problems that the characters faced together and on their own really leave something with you. It also helps in connecting with the plot as a whole and caring for the characters themselves.
4 out of 5 stars.
336 pages. Hardback.
Young Adult. Paranormal. Fantasy. Contemporary. GLBT. Romance. Fiction.

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