The Rest of Us Just Live Here

by Patrick Ness

Ever wondered what happens to teenagers who don't fight vampires, zombies or soul-eaters? They fight battles of their own, over families, identity, friendship, love and their future. Mikey will make you laugh, cry and remember...


'You're sure you're okay?' he asks me later, driving us to work after Mel came home from her day out with Call Me Steve. I could have called in sick, but I was getting antsy just sitting around the house. It felt like I was waiting for something to happen. Which has to be the worst part of being young. So many of your decisions aren't yours; they're made badly by other people. Sometimes they're made by other people who have no idea what the consequences of those decisions might be. The bastards.
