Watch award-winning author Patrick Ness read form his upcoming book, The Rest of Us Just Live Here.
Patrick Ness's bold and irreverent novel powerfully asks 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...
Patrick Ness is the author of the award-winning and best-selling Chaos Walking trilogy and the critically-acclaimed More Than This. John Green has described him as "an insanely beautiful writer". He has won every major prize in children's fiction, including the Carnegie Medal twice.
The Rest Of Us Just Live Here will be out in August.
