The Rest Of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Here's the Amazon blurb:
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".
Sounds pretty cool! There are so many superhero/special snowflake novels around and it's refreshing to see one from the Ordinary Joe's perspective.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?
