MegLee Thank you so much! It was such a poignant story but a really lovely one as well! I normally steer clear of anything too heavy but this was really well done!😊 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ absolutely 5 stars. I love this book! I laughed, cried... and was well and truly gripped throughout. I love dystopian fiction and this ticked a lot of boxes for me, especially the unique language used by the protagonist which reminded me of Riddley Walker a bit. #fivestars #theknifeofneverlettinggo #patrickness #dystopian #scifi #riddleywalker

RaimeyGallant Nice review. :)

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 😢🙈

I LOVE this book.
It's marketed as Dystopian Margaret Atwood for young adults, but really it's for everyone.
It has echoes of The Handmaids Tale, but less explicit. I was reading to vet the book for a 10 yr old. It covers genocide, misogyny, responsibility, war, love, adulthood... everything. Now I'm desperate to get hold of part 2 - it's a trilogy.
*Spoiler alert* Manchee. Omg. ***weeping***

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.

Every kid should read this book. Patrick Ness is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. If you have read “More than This” you need to read this as well. Absolutely beautiful story that all people can connect to. #amonstercalls #patrickness #ya #yaliterature #teenfiction #teachersoflitsy
