Patrick Ness is truly a gifted writer. I fell in love with The Knife of Never Letting Go even though I never thought I’d enjoy a book like that. His stories are compelling, poignant, and thought-provoking. I’m featuring the trailer for his new book, A Monster Calls. I just bought my copy the other day and plan on starting it today. Teachers/bloggers/librarians I trust have been raving about this book, so I can’t wait to read it. The book trailer is awesome and the music is beautiful. Enjoy!
P.S. A Monster Calls has been nominated for a Cybils award 🙂
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (Summary from Goodreads):
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.
