The monster showed up just after midnight. 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 monster in his back garden, though, this monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild.
Adult themes but written as a young adult book from the point of view of a young boy dealing with nightmares, bullying and the big one - his mother's cancer. A solid read.
