Book of the Week

Leave a comment

This week’s book of the week is The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness.

This is the story of a possible apocalypse. Mikey worries about everything, adulthood, love, relationships, popularity, parents and the future. He worries about his father who is a drunk and a grandma who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. If that is not enough, Mikey also has the “Immortals” contend with.

This is a great novel that is hilarious as well as poignant. It is written as a narrative that also features a demigod cat and a zombie deer.

Suitable for age thirteen and above.
