The 10th anniversary edition of the bestselling novel about love, loss and hope from the twice Carnegie Medal-winning Patrick Ness.

Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don't quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there's a visitor at his window. It's ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth.

Patrick Ness takes the final idea of the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd and weaves an extraordinary and heartbreaking tale of mischief, healing and above all, the courage it takes to survive. Since publication, A Monster Calls has become an international bestseller and been made into a film starring Felicity Jones, Liam Neeson and Sigourney Weaver.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Patrick Ness is an insanely beautiful writer. -- John Green * TIME Magazine *
[A] significant and stirring book... Both realistic and magical, it is a fable about the complexity of our emotions, giving us permission to feel anger, and illuminating the nature of loss. * The Sunday Times *
A funny, moving story which brought a lump to my throat at the end. This is definitely one of my favourite books of the year. * Malorie Blackman, The Guardian *
A thoughtful story that lingers in the mind. * Daily Express *
...a profoundly sad story. But it's also wise, darkly funny and brave, told in spare sentences, punctuated with fantastic images... A story that lodges in your bones and stays there. * The New York Times *

“A Monster Calls”

There’s not much to say about this novel that hasn’t already been said. It is a beautifully written and illustrated piece of work. It was very short and I managed to read it over a couple of nights but it will... More
