    The winner of both the Carnegie Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal in 2012, Chaos Walking author Patrick Ness' A Monster Calls is an extraordinarily moving novel about the difficult subject of terminal illness and coming to terms with loss.

    Based on an idea by the late Siobhan Dowd, this is an unforgettable read. 'The monster showed up just after midnight. As they do...' is how the book begins, 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. This monster is something different - something ancient and something wild.

    Now an acclaimed film starring Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver and Liam Neeson, A Monster Calls is a heartbreakingly beautiful read.

  • The Rest of Us Just Live Here

    Patrick Ness

    Product Code: ARHIU
    Hardback
    From the Chaos Walking trilogy through to A Monster Calls and More Than This, the Carnegie Medal-winning Patrick Ness has firmly established himself as one of the most talented (and one of our favourite!) authors of young adult fiction. His latest novel, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, asks what happens during a time of apocalyptic crisis when you're not the 'chosen one', and all you want to do is to live a normal life...

    Despite the potentially impending end of the world, Mikey is setting his sights on going to prom and graduating. While the superhero-style indie kids save everyone, he just tries to live his life and faces battles against the more 'ordinary' obstacles of teenage life - from unrequited crushes to classroom disagreements.

    Turning dystopian fiction and 'hero' stories on their head, this is a bold and irreverent novel that will make you think about all those unheralded characters in the background. Full of clever wit and observations, it's a must-read and this hardback edition looks beautiful, too.

    The Rest of Us Just Live Here has been shortlisted for 2016's Carnegie Medal.

    Paperback

    From two-time Carnegie Medal winner Patrick Ness comes an enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life - or perhaps afterlife - of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world. A boy called Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he is here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighbourhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust and completely abandoned. What's going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this...
