A Monster Calls (mini-review)

Finished A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. 

Conor accidentally calls a monster to him while his mother is dying of cancer. He hopes the monster can help him–maybe cure his mom; maybe fix it so he won’t have to live with his grandma, who he hates; at the very least, stop him from being bullied all the time. Instead, it tells him it will tell him three stories and then he will tell it a fourth story–a true one. 

Oof, this book. I wanted to read it after I saw (and loved) the movie. And even though I knew everything that would happen, the book still ripped out my heart. 

This is one of the best books I’ve ever read and the movie is just as amazing. Highly recommended.
