You do not write your life with words…You write it with actions. What you think is not important. It is only important what you do” A Monster Calls, Patrick Ness & Siobhan Dowd
Initial Thoughts: I had discovered this novel on Goodreads a week ago. The premise on Goodreads (featured below) had me hooked instantly. The monster wants the truth, but what is the truth? I had a strong desperate urge to know what the truth was. Once I found out, I was very surprised.
The monster showed up after midnight. As they do. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting. He’s been expecting 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… This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth” (Goodreads, A Monster Calls, Patrick Ness & Siobhan Dowd)
