Product description

The Ness kills it yet again! Ordinary? Never. In a world of fantasy monsters and high-school gods, what’s left for the rest of us: the normal ones? Even in a fantasy world, we don’t all get to be the Chosen One. You know – the hero fighting zombies or soul-eating ghosts, or this weird new thing with the deadly blue lights. Most of us are like Mikey. The kids just trying to get to class or get their homework done. Mikey’s idea of heroism is finding the courage to ask Henna to the prom. Preferably before someone blows up the high school (again). Because life isn’t always about this week’s end of the world. Even when your best buddy is the god of mountain lions…

  • An extraordinary author’s hymn to ordinary life
  • Brilliantly original mix of fantasy, sci-fi and realism
  • “Clever, witty and warm” – Daily Mail
  • “An insanely beautiful writer” – John Green

This book contains mature content and language.
