From the Chaos Walking trilogy through to A Monster Calls and More Than This, the Carnegie Medal-winning Patrick Ness has firmly established himself as one of the most talented (and one of our favourite!) authors of young adult fiction. His latest novel, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, asks what happens during a time of apocalyptic crisis when you're not the 'chosen one', and all you want to do is to live a normal life...
Despite the potentially impending end of the world, Mikey is setting his sights on going to prom and graduating. While the superhero-style indie kids save everyone, he just tries to live his life and faces battles against the more 'ordinary' obstacles of teenage life - from unrequited crushes to classroom disagreements.
Turning dystopian fiction and 'hero' stories on their head, this is a bold and irreverent novel that will make you think about all those unheralded characters in the background. Full of clever wit and observations, it's a must-read and this hardback edition looks beautiful, too.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here has been shortlisted for 2016's Carnegie Medal.
