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.

I don't exactly know why but this book never completely clicked for me. It has about a million elements that are right up my alley but put together this John-Green-meets-Buffy genre mash-up fell flat. I think Ness spent so much time satirizing YA fantasy that he failed to notice how closely he was following realistic teen drama tropes and that didn't work for me. If your favorite Buffy character is Xander and "The Zeppo" was your favorite episode of the show, you'll probably love this. For me, not so much on either count. ( )

This is delightful. It's the story that happens to the kids that AREN'T saving the world from the latest apocalypse. ( )

The Rest of Us Just Live Here is one of the best YA novels I read this year and a wondrful wrap up to my 2020 reding. I was really interested by the premise of regular teens living their lives while the Chosen Ones save the world, hopping that their school doesn't get blown up by the monster of the week before graduation.

Patrick Ness explored this idea a lot deeper than I expected, and twisted it so that it could explore not only the topic of normalcy, and what being a regualr. it is quite diverse (the protagonist has OCD and anxiety, his sister has anorexia, as well as some POC and queer rep). The book also has a very positive attitude to teraphy and medication - the teraphy session scene was among my favourite moments in the story ( )

Me han gustado mucho el protagonista principal, sus problemas diarios y sus situaciones cotidianas y sus amigos, pero la historia no era lo que me esperaba encontrar, y quizás se me ha hecho muy superficial para mi gusto. ( )

The indie kids, huh? You've got them at your school, too. That group with the cool-geek haircuts and the charity shop clothes and names from the fifties. Nice enough, never mean, but always the ones who end up being the Chosen One when the vampires come calling or when the alien queen needs the Source of All Light or something. They're too cool to ever, ever do anything like go to prom or listen to music other than jazz while reading poetry. They've always got some story going on that they're heroes of. The rest of us just have to live here, hovering around the edges, left out of it all, for the most part.
