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 newest threat to the world is this week? 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 the next apocolypse. Sure his family isn’t perfect — and neither are his friends — but who said life would be easy? The rest of us all have to live here, even if we’re not the ones saving the world. In this clever, funny, and touching novel, award-winning author Patrick Ness takes a look at what it’s like to be the ordinary kids living around the “chosen ones” who are the heroes of every fantasy series. Your teens will laugh at this wry, satiric takedown of the typical Chosen One genre as they realize that it doesn’t take a pending apocalypse to make it feel like the end of the world. Ages 14 and up. 336pp.
