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

The Rest of Us Just Live Here By Patrick Ness

2 1 2 stars.Here s one thing for certain Patrick Ness is a total Buffy fanboy Or possibly he hated it, but either way he paid enough attention to seemingly frame an entire book around the concept of The Chosen One and specifically Xander s quote from season 7 They ll never know how tough it is, ...

The Rest of Us Just Live Here By Patrick Ness

I was a bit disappointed with this book I found myself comparing it to A MONSTER CALLS, which I know I shouldn t have, because they re completely opposite books from tone to message At the same time though this book offered up different things that I enjoyed We have an excellent diverse cast of char...

There were definitely elements of this that I enjoyed, like the diverse set of characters and the way it was poking fun at Chosen One stories, but the whole thing fell pretty flat for me I love Patrick Ness s other books, but this one didn t really do anything for me.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here By Patrick Ness

I AM IN COMPLETE DENIAL.No way this book was written by the one and only Patrick Ness.That was some real crappy romance Of all the romances in the world, this one really sucked Bland Clich Tedious Uninteresting Unexciting Sleep inducing.

The Rest of Us Just Live Here By Patrick Ness

The Rest of Us Just Live Here By Patrick Ness

So, since this got a bunch of good reviews, I decided to pick this up Just my luck that Target would have autographed first editions of it The basic premise of this book is that the main characters here are the background players in everything else The funny thing is that this story, while YA, makes...

The Rest of Us Just Live Here By Patrick Ness
