Looking for a new book that isn’t just like everything else on the shelves of Waterstones? Then, you might just need ‘The Rest of Us Just Live Here’ by Patrick Ness, coming to you in just 2 days time – 27th August.
What if you weren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you were 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 might just be the God of mountain lions… An exceptional novel from the author praised by John Green as “an insanely beautiful writer”.
We think Walker’s animated cover for ‘The Rest Of Us Just Live Here’ is way cool. Check it out and let us know what you think of Patrick Ness’s latest read @maximumpopbooks.
