Check out this week’s book trailer for A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. There’s an interesting story behind this book, it is inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd. Dowd (author of Bog Child, Solace of the Road, A Swift Pure Cry, and The London Eye Mystery) passed away in 2007 of breast cancer, and left behind an unfinished manuscript. Patrick Ness (author of the Chaos Walking series) was asked by Dowd’s publisher to try and finish the story. Though he had never met Dowd before, he took on the task.
