Six starred reviews!

A bold and irreverent YA novel that powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable, The Rest of Just Live Here is from novelist Patrick Ness, author of the Carnegie Medal- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winning A Monster Calls and the critically acclaimed Chaos Walking trilogy.

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.

I really like this book (as well as all of Patrick Ness’s other books)!!! It has an amazing setting and the book totally tells me what it is like when you have to go to college...
It also reminds me that not all of us are special and not all of us are gonna change the world. Sooooo, ya! I really like this book!!!👍😀❤️

I feel so good after reading this

You know a book is good if you’re left wanting more or left feeling perfectly satisfied. You know it’s a good book if it was what you needed to read and experience. You know it’s a good book if you laugh and cry. My gosh I loved this book and I love this author who has yet to fail me. Words cannot describe how much better I feel after reading this 10/10 highly recommend it. Read it. Now. Seriously
