An extraordinary and moving novel about coming to terms with loss. Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don’t quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there’s a visitor at his window, but it’s not the one he’s been expecting. This one is ancient, elemental, a force of nature. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. It wants the truth. Bestselling novelist Patrick Ness takes the final idea of award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd – whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself – and weaves a tale of heartbreak, healing, and mischief, and above all, of the courage it takes to face the truth.
