What if you’re not the Chosen One?

If you haven’t read “The Rest of Us Just Live Here” by Patrick Ness, do yourself a favor and check it out.

The premise? Telling the story not of the stereotypical Chosen One, but of his or her ordinary companions and other normal people who are usually on the sidelines.

This is my favorite quote from this book:

“Not everyone has to be the Chosen One. Not everyone has to be the guy who saves the world. Most people just have to live their lives the best they can, doing things that are great for them, having great friends, trying to make their lives better, loving people properly. All the while knowing that the world makes no sense but trying to find a way to be happy anyway.”
