Synopsis

At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting— he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s 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.

    A Book Never Too Old to Read

    What a wonderful story, full of so much depth and emotion. Amazing characters, beautifully written. A story told in an honest voice, by a young boy, a grandmother, a mother, a father, school classmates, and of course a Monster. I could not put this book down. There is so much for the reader to hear and learn in it for different ages, I did not want the story to end. But a word to the reader, make sure you have kleenex with you as you read. The outcome of this book lives in the real world, where life does not always turn otu the way we want it to or wish that it would.
