The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.
But it isnât the monster Conorâs been expecting. Heâs been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare heâs 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.
