The Rest of Us Just Live Here - Patrick Ness

I wasn’t sure how this one was going to go, but I ended up really liking it. It’s quite funny, and it has a really enjoyable and diverse cast of characters. I can only judge the representation of anxiety, but at least that part was done really, really well. And if you want a fun meta take on Chosen One tropes, this is a good one.
