A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness

A wonderful book. It has a little of fantasy but more than anything, is a touching story about a boy and his mother who is sick of Cancer. There were times where the yew tree reminded me of LOTR, and others (when it was telling its stories), when it reminded me of The Princess Bride.

 

The writing is beautiful.

I admit I was teary-eyed several times, but more towards the end.
