The Rest of Us Just Live Here

This insightful novel questions how we can find extraordinary things and people in our ordinary, everyday lives. Patrick Ness writes that some people are like Mikey, who perhaps is not the Chosen One and will never be a fairytale hero, but will lead an uncomplicated life, and worry about prom, graduation, and relationships.

She sets off in search of heartless Howl, a wizard who presides in his ever-moving castle in the hills. Her journey to breaking the spell is also one of self-discovery. Sophie becomes more and more entangled with Howl, bargains with a fire demon and finally goes head to head with the Witch of the Waste.

Further comments for teachers:

The book was made into a film in 2004 by Studio Ghibli: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howl%27s_Moving_Castle_(film) – Students could compare the book with the film.

This book is part of the World of Howl series, which may interest students who want to find out more about Howl.
