I adored this powerful little book! A Monster Calls is an easy (but far from simple) read that had me hooked from the very first page. I finished it in an afternoon, but it is definitely one of those haunting little stories that has stuck with me long after I turned the final page. A Monster Calls is a masterfully written, stunningly creative tale about the challenge of facing down monsters, both real and imagined.

From Goodreads: 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.  Check it out on Goodreads!
