Product description

Seriously awesome cover alert! Oh yes, and the book’s by Patrick Ness, so don’t worry about let-downs. (Though do worry about weird blue lights, death and the right to be just normal.) 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 new thing with the deadly blue lights. Most of us are like Mikey. The faces in the background of the wide-angle shots. The kids just trying to get to class or go to prom. But that doesn’t mean our stories don’t count. Mikey’s best mate might be the god of mountain lions, but his idea of heroism is finding the guts to ask Henna out. Preferably before the next end-of-the-world disaster…

  • A magnificent tale of the heroism within the ordinary
  • Surreal mix of superhero fantasy and high-school drama
  • See a world of heroes through the eyes of the ‘normal one’
  • Patrick Ness is a double Carnegie Medal winner

This book contains mature content.
