When Siobhan Dowd died much too early of cancer, she left behind the beginnings of a YA story. Patrick Ness (Monsters of Men) has brought her idea to completion--A Monster Calls will be out in May.
Here's the summary:
"The monster showed up just 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... The monster in his back garden, though, this monster is something different. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth."
