The monster that appears to Conor one blistery night is not the one he has been expecting to show up. Conor has had the same nightmare every night since his mother started her cancer treatments, but this time it is a different monster that comes calling on him, one that wants to visit him for three nights and tell a different story each time. On the fourth night, he expects Conor to tell one. Conor feels like he has enough to deal with without having to listen to a monster’s unsettling stories. His father is away in America, he is bullied at school, and he has to deal with his cruel grandmother who has come to stay. But the worst thing for Conor is his mother’s increasing illness; the treatments aren’t working the way they are supposed to and she is getting sicker and sicker all the time. However, the monster insists on being heard, even if Conor doesn’t want to hear the truth it is slowly trying to tell him.
I picked this book up because it had very interesting illustrations.
I finished this book because it was addicting.
I’d give this book to just about anyone.
