Summary

Follows the lives of ordinary high school students as typical literary tropes of teenage novels such as zombie invasion and terminal illness are played out in everyday life around them.

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...

NOTE: Contains some strong language and violence
