‘The Girl With All The Gifts ‘ is next on my list

‘A Monster Calls’ is heartbreaking.
it made me weep – but then it was meant to make me weep ( I think )
Quite amazing that along with ‘The Knife of Never letting Go’ ,Patrick Ness should write so thought- provokingly and in such an unsentimental way about the impact the death of a parent/parents can have on their child.
He illustrates beautifully how people who are suffering with grief are vulnerable , isolated and sad and yet can be incredibly strong .
But tonight I do not have to read to get to sleep as Jacob is home .
So the four of us together and i feel safe under our battered old roof.
