Review: A Monster Calls

A Monster Calls A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the story of Conor, and the monster that has decided to come to him each night. Conor is already dealing with a terrible nightmare, which he will not even discuss, and, the fact that his mom is very sick with cancer. His dad has remarried and gone to live in America, and Conor is left to deal with some awful bullies at school. And now, his wicked grandmother is insisting that Conor should move in with her. The monster is scary, but so is Conor's life. There are some great illustrations that go along with this story, and now, there is even a movie about it.
