Art from the book A Monster Calls written by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay.

It’s a children’s book about a boy (Conor) who starts having nightmares about a monster every night since his mother started her cancer treatment. One night when he wakes up, there is an actual monster right outside his window. The monster is a yew tree in the cemetery behind Conor’s house during day-time but the monster we see at night. I wont go into more detail about the story because it’s really worth reading. You might want to have some tissues and ice-cream ready though.

It was inspired by Siobhan Dowd, who passed away due to cancer and could not write this book herself

But there’s more to adult books than adult material. There are a number of books that are actually rather better if read when you’re a teen, some because they’re entertaining contraband, some because it can never be too early to read something so wonderful, and some because, if you wait, you might have missed your chance forever.
Friend: Hey, what's that Knife of Never letting go series about?
Me: Oh, it's about this boy who lives in this world where everyone can hear men's thoughts and there are no women. It's great, my favourite series, I really recommend it!
What I really mean: IT'S AN EPIC TALE TOLD BY A BRAVE, SMART, BEAUTIFUL BOY WHO FIGHTS FOR LOVE AND LIFE AND FAMILY AND COMBATS LOSS AND HOPELESSNESS AND DESPERATION AND A FANTASTIC STRONG PERFECT GIRL. IT'S ABOUT HOW THEY OPPOSE EVERYTHING BAD AND STRUGGLE WITH STAYING GOOD AND HOW EASILY MEN ARE CORRUPTED BUT THEN HOW THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY, ALWAYS SOME WAY TO COME BACK, THAT HUMANS ARE MESSY, LOUD CREATURES BUT THEY ARE SO WORTH FORGIVING AND SAVING. IT'S ABOUT GENOCIDE AND MISOGYNY AND FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN, IT'S ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF AND UNDERSTANDING OTHERS AND SCREAMING IN THE FACE OF EVERYTHING CONCOCTED ON THE BELIEF THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS. IT'S LIFE AND DEATH AND THE LUCK THAT SEEMS TO PASS BY THE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE IT MOST, IT'S COURAGE AND COWARDICE AND FAITH AND SKEPTICISM AND THE AWFUL THINGS PEOPLE DO TO EACH OTHER.
It is the basic idea that if you fight and try and stay true and good and conquer until you bleed, and triumph and forgive and show mercy and understand, know, that mercy is such a DEFINING form of courage, then you will find happiness.
If not for yourself, than for the people who deserve it most.

I think the reason Manchee evokes so many feels is that everyone who’s ever had a dog imagines him as their dog.
