Synopsis

Award-winning writer Patrick Ness's bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.



Award-winning writer 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... An exceptional novel from the author praised by John Green as "an insanely beautiful writer".

Customer Reviews

A good, pleasant read. Not the best I have read, but very enjoyable. I would recommend it to people who like the typical YA novels about love and finding yourself, but with a twist.

Staff Choice

What happens to you if you're not a hero, you don't have any superpowers – what if you're ordinary in an extraordinary world where indie kids fight zombies, save people’s lives, and you just watch (or you're the one who needs saving)? This book is about me, it's about you, and every other ordinary person in an extraordinary world. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer if it was from Xander's point of view. Pure brilliance.
