The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He expected 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. The monster in his back garden, though, is something quite different. Something ancient; something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth.
In this powerful novel about coming to terms with loss, Patrick Ness – the Costa Award-winning author of the Chaos Walking trilogy – spins a tale from the final idea of Carnegie Medal winner Siobhan Dowd, whose early death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. Darkly mischievous and painfully funny, it is a truly extraordinary work from two of our finest writers for young adults.
