  A Monster Calls
Inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd

 
 

author: Patrick Ness

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isnít the monster Conorís been expecting-- heís been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare heís had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. Itís ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd-- whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself-- Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.
