WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!
Author: Patrick Ness
Release date: August 27, 2015
Summary: What if you weren't the Chosen One?
What if you're not the one who's so often the hero in YA fiction; who's supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and 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...
Thoughts: This book just sounds delightfully weird and quirky. And after reading A Monster Calls last year, I immediately knew I needed more Patrick Ness in my life. I haven't yet picked up the Chaos Walking trilogy, or More Than This, but that just means I still have a ton of Patrick Ness to read and enjoy in the future!
