Author(s): Patrick Ness
Patrick Ness's #1 New York Times bestseller now in a movie tie-in version with a striking new cover.
The monster in Conor's backyard is not the one he's been expecting -- the one from the nightmare he's had every night since his mother started her treatments. This monster is ancient. And wild. And it wants something from Conor. 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 paperback movie tie-in edition includes a book group discussion guide.
