Ending #NationalReadABookDay by starting one that‘s been on my TBR list for way too long ... watching the movie broke me so reading the book might do that and then some 😢🙈

It's about a 12 year old boy, who loses his mum to cancer, and his feelings around fear of that loss in the days before she finally dies.
I think it's pitched for 12 year olds. The monster is his repressed fear and anger, to whom he converses throughout the book.
My 9 year old daughter raved so much about it that I had to read it. She said that it was the first book that made her actually cry.
