Book Rate: 10!

This book is great. I really really like it. So My friend gaveme a ebook copy of The Knife of Not Letting Go by Patrick Ness, so I read it and didn't much like it though I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads. So after reading A Monster Calls, I'm going to give another try for The Knife of Not Letting go.

A Monster Calls is very sad. I almost cry when the part his was holding on to his mother when she was calling his name and was about to fall down. Though in the end he did let go of his mother when she was about to die in the hospitol. It's a very sad book to read ;(. But very interesting of how he lets the bullies beat him and even lie to the teachers about it. I feel sorry for him and his mother. And his parents divorce because of his mother's mom being all that. Such a sad book. Though it was kind of scary about the monster keep on talkin to him at midnight. It looks kind of ugly.

The book is like a picture book because it have a full page of pictures and on the background there is alwasy a picture even if there is writing on it. But I'm find with that as long is a good book and it is a FABULOUS BOOK.

Ok that's all for this fabulous book.
