Roary’s Reads: A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

A Monster Calls by Patrick NessThe 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 one he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatment, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming…

This monster is something different, something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth.

A Monster Calls is an extraordinary moving novel of coming to terms with loss.

    This has been nominated for both the Carnegie Medal and the Greenaway Medal. This is a unique accolade for a book that adults will enjoy just as much as children. Fingers crossed it wins, its one of my favourite books ever.
