Five Minute Friday: Patrick Ness
The 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 treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming…
This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.
It wants the truth.
A Note From Amy
I’ve had my hands on this book more than once, but I never followed through. Shame on me! This week I finally brought A MONSTER CALLS home with me from the library. The story of a monster tree that comes to life, only to terrorize Conor is a wonderfully scary tale. Patrick Ness never fails to intrigue the reader, leaving them hold their breath until the very end. For fans of horror–this is a MUST read!
