Bereavement Book of the Month – October | A Monster Calls

Bereavement Book a monster calls

Every month we will be highlighting suggested reads for both adults, young adults and children.

Our recommendation for this month is A Monster Calls Written by Patrick Ness

A seminal YA novel with an illustrious literary pedigree behind it, A Monster Calls was the brainchild of Siobhan Dowd who tragically died before she could write it. In the hands of Patrick Ness, Dowd’s vision becomes a haunting, elegiac work about terminal illness, hope and desperation. Dark, moving and packed with electrifying imagery, A Monster Calls is simply unforgettable reading.
