What if you weren’t the Chosen One?

The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

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 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 is worshiped by mountain lions.

Award-winning writer Patrick Ness’s bold and irreverent novel powerfully reminds us that there are many different types of remarkable.

Just picked this up on Edelweiss! I’m been meaning to check out Patrick Ness for quite a while now and this one sounds super fun! Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions. <– This makes me laugh. Definitely can’t wait to start this one!!

What’s your WoW? Link us up!
