Patrick Ness - A Monster Calls

St. Louis Public Library - Central Branch 

Best-selling author Patrick Ness in conversation with Dr. Jennifer Buehler about his newest tale, A Monster Calls. An unflinching, darkly funny, and deeply moving story of a boy, his seriously ill mother, and an unexpected monstrous visitor. At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. From the final idea of award-winning author Siobhan Dowd-- whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself-- Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief, loss, and monsters both real and imagined.
