The Rest of Us Just Live Here

ALA Best Fiction for Young Adults * Cooperative Children’s Book Center CCBC Choice * Michael Printz Award shortlist * Six starred reviews * Kirkus Best Book of the Year * VOYA Perfect Ten * NYPL Top Ten Best Books of the Year for Teens * Chicago Public Library Best Teen Books of the Year * Publishers Marketplace Buzz Books * ABC Best Books for Children * Bank Street Best Books List

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

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 chosen one who has to save the world and sacrifice (some of) their friends while doing so only to heroically fulfill their in the end! that's NOT what this book is about. sure, all that shit is indeed happening and it's kind of part of the story -... the chosen one who has to save the world and sacrifice (some of) their friends while doing so only to heroically fulfill their in the end! that's NOT what this book is about. sure, all that shit is indeed happening and it's kind of part of the story - but it's not the focus!

Es ist der Kontrast zu den anderen Büchern in denen immer ein Jugendlicher die Welt rettet. Es geht um die Kids die damit nichts zu tun haben und von all den übernatürlichen Sachen nichts wissen wollen. Und wie sie für sich das Leben meistern. Es war okay zu lesen. Nicht mega spannend, aber auch nicht langweilig. Jeder dort hat seine Probleme mit dem Leben, der Liebe, der Familie und alles drum herum - mit dem sich Leute in dem Alter gut identifizieren können.

It's okay to not be okay

The way he brings characters to life never cease to amaze me. This particular book focuses on ordinary people, living in an extraordinary world. (Just imagine Harry Potter was real but you're just a side character, that's this book) Mikey has not only to deal with graduation but also with his anxiety and OCD which seems to get worse by the day. While his friends seem to get on with their lifes and are up to greater things, Mikey feels left behind. I found Mikey a very relateable character, his story hit very close home, but it shows us that it is okay to not feel okay all the time, the importance of friendship and talking and opening up to the people you love. Great book.
