The Rest of Us Just Live Here

The  Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Mike is just a normal kid. Not one of the chosen ones. All he wants to do is graduate before the high school gets blown up. Again. So when the mysterious Immortals come, there's not a lot he can do about it.

What a brilliant book. Seriously well written and I love the idea of a normal child who really is just that, normal. I thought the little love story entwined, and I thought the fact that mike's friend is a quarter god. It just mixes things up even more (in a good way).

I am going to give it a 10/10
and an age rating of 12+
