Description

Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don't quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there's a visitor at his window. It's ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Bestselling novelist Patrick Ness takes the final idea of the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd and weaves a heartbreaking tale of mischief, healing and above all, the courage it takes to survive.

Customer reviews

This is a fantastic novel - no complaints there. Though I must admit myself disappointed; this edition of 'Monster Calls' doesn't include the beautiful illustrations of the other covers. I would recommend purchasing a different edition of this book so you can enjoy the illustrations, they really do add more depth to the story.show more
