Synopsis

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isnt the monster Conors been expecting hes been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare hes had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. Its 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.
