A Monster CALLS by Patrick Ness is a deeply moving story of a 13-year-old boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected visitor.
Conor wakes up at seven minutes past midnight to find a monster outside his bedroom window, however it’s not the one he was expecting – it’s not the monster from his recurring nightmare.
The monster has come to collect something from Conor, and what it wants is something terrible, dangerous, and unthinkable: the truth.
Originally an idea from the award-winning author Siobhan Dowd, whose premature death prevented her from writing it, Patrick Ness weaves a haunting, profoundly sad, brave, and darkly funny story of loss and healing.
A book that we believe should be read in one sitting, which will steal the hearts of all ages.
