Written by Patrick Ness out of an idea, characters, and beginning by Siobhan Dowd (who died of cancer before she could write it), A Monster Calls ($11) has been called 'haunting and heartbreaking' and a real mix of love and grief hidden within a story. We normally don't reach for books that make us cry (Little Women excepted), but this book will change the way you look at life and grieve over a loss from cancer. We recommend it to anyone.
