Newcastle, Seven Stories

“On the day we’re the last people to see indie kid Finn alive, we’re all sprawled together in The Field, talking about love and stomachs.”

Don’t miss two time Carnegie Medal Winner and YA favourite, Patrick Ness as he discusses his brand-new book The Rest of Us Just Live Here. Hear Patrick talk candidly about his writing process, where he finds inspiration for his dystopian novels and what he thinks the future for the genre holds.

Talking about his new book, Patrick said, “What if you lived in a world a lot like a YA novel? Where people you know have already battled vampires and zombies and soul-eating ghosts and whatever this new thing turns out to be? What if you just want to go to prom and graduate before someone goes and blows up the high school again? I wanted to write a novel for anyone trying to live a normal life in a world gone mad, for anyone who actually has bigger problems than this week’s end of the world, for anyone who needs to find out that there are many different kinds of extraordinary.”
