A Monster Calls


I didn't know what I was in for when I picked this book for one of my challenges. It's a prize winning YA horror novel. When I got the book at the library and read the flap jacket synopsis, I realized I might be in for an emotional ride. The concept for the book was from Siobhan Dowd who passed away from cancer before she could write the book. It was developed into a novel by Patrick Ness. It's about Conor, a boy whose mother has cancer. One night, a monster visits him. It's not the monster from his recurring nightmares. This one doesn't scare him. However, the monster makes Conor confront issues he does not want to face.
