My name is Clare and I am a children's bookseller.
As part of my job I write book reviews, some get published and some never see the light of day.
This blog collects together all my kids book reviews, everything from picture books to young adult novels. Many of these I've read as preview copies, but I won't publish the review here until after the book is published. (Spoilers, sweetie).
You won't find any bad reviews here, these are all books I love.
Oh, those indie kids, always dying beautifully of cancer or being the chosen one. But we can't all be indie kids, it would be too exhausting. Luckily, this book is all about non-indie kids, ordinary kids, very much on the edge of the supernatural and with no interest in that dangerous world. The Rest of Us Just Live Here is very clever, slightly funny, but mostly just very familiar in it's realism in the face of the unbelievable.
