Review: The Rest of Us Just Live Here

 

Title: The Rest of Us Just Live Here

Author: Patrick Ness

Who’s it for? Teens

What if you were Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Even if your best friend might be the God of mountain lions…
