I put down the bottle and picked up a book. Reading saved my life! I went from booze hangovers to book hangovers and I am the happiest I've ever been!
"All you have to do is tell the truth" the monster said.......
where do I start? I guess I'll start with the truth then. This book is brilliant. I had no idea this book was going to turn out like it did. I was certainly not expecting the turn it took, but this books is beautiful, poetic, haunting and heart-wrenching. I was in tears at the end of the book, while closing the book and setting it back into my bookshelf and still in tears when I sat down and was holding my 3 month old to feed her. (which absolutely didn't help, staring at her big brown eyes just made me cry even more) I don't want to spoil anything for the readers, but I recommend this book to everyone. It definitely teaches life lessons and how to deal with grief. This story will forever remain in my heart and is by far one of my favorite reads! Much applause and gratitude to Siobhan Dowd for her imaginative story and for it being passed on to the brilliant, Patrick Ness who completed and gifted us with this EXCEPTIONAL story, A Monster Calls
Powerful, heart-wrenching, and extraordinary story! A must read for all ages!!
