Author: Patrick Ness
Publication Date: September 27, 2011
Publisher: Walker Books
Genre: All-Ages, Fantasy
Description 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.


     "I wish I had a hundred years," she said, very quietly. "A hundred years I could give to you." 
       He didn't answer her. A few seconds later, the medicine had sent her to sleep, but it didn't matter.
        They'd had the the talk.
        There was nothing more to say.

I finished this book in one really late night sitting, and it was amazing, profound and I really wish my copy had the illustrations (I Googled them after) which were gorgeous! 

What're you guys reading this week? Leave me a link so I can stop by!
