'Stories are wild creatures', the monster said. 'When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?'

Every night at exactly seven minutes after midnight, Conor O’Malley has the same nightmare, ever since his mother fell ill. But one night, something is different, something is at his window. An ancient, wild, force of nature - a monster, and it wants to tell its story but in return, Conor must face his deepest fear yet and tell the truth.

A heartbreaking tale of mischief, healing and finding the courage to survive. Patrick Ness’s bestselling novel is brought vividly to life by The Watermill Youth Ensemble.
