Product description

The monster showed up after midnight. As they do. But it isn t the monster Conor s been expecting. He s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming. . . . This monster, though, is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Patrick Ness spins a tale from the final story idea of Siobhan Dowd, whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. Darkly mischievous and painfully funny, A Monster Calls is an extraordinarily moving novel about coming to terms with loss from two of our finest writers for young adults. Compelling . . . powerful and impressive." - Philip Pullman, author of the award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy Exceptional . . . this is storytelling as it should be - harrowing, lyrical, and transcendent." - Meg Rosoff, author of the Printz Award winning novel How I Live Now Brilliant and elegant, with all the thrills and ambition you would expect from the author of the Chaos Walking trilogy." - Frank Cottrell Boyce, award-winning author of Millions and Cosmic Haunting, lyrical, powerful, and true. Patrick Ness has crafted a masterful story about grief and loss, love and hope that lingers in the heart like a ghost. - Libba Bray, author of the Printz Award-winning novel Going Bovine"
