A Monster Calls

One day a monster calls on Connor and makes a request that he will tell the boy 3 stories and after the last story is told, Connor must tell his own story, a true story.  But Connor learns that life is not as simple as it may seem when the monster starts to tell his stories.  As Connor struggles to make sense of the problems in his own life, he must also unravel the stories the monster shares with him.  Then he must find the strength to tell his own.

A powerfully moving book that explores the many facets of the human mind.  Though we think we know what we believe, many motivators may change our viewpoint and alter our perception of the world around us.  Injecting a monster into this story is a brilliant move which distracts to the true story of Connor and his life.  I suggest this book for 12 and up.
