Summary: At seven minutes past midnight, thirteen-year-old Conor wakes to find a monster outside his bedroom window. But it isn’t the monster Conor’s been expecting— he’s been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he’s had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It’s ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth. 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.

This is an absolutley beautifully crafted book. The images, the story. Its entirly breath taking! I wish I had more to say about this book. Its an amazing middle grade. Everyone should read it. It also has a beautiful story. Also quick read. I wish I could share the images with you because they unbelievably amazing! 5
