It's a story about a boy named Conor - who chose to live in lies, alone and want to be saved. And there was a monster who came at 12.07, who told the boy of three tales and in return who wanted the fourth and final tale to be told by the boy himself - the truth.

Poor boy who couldn't stand to see his ill-mother (cancer) to suffer more and thought to just let her go but at the same time, he didn't want to which ached him more. And that woke the monster - yew tree - at his backyard. Conor thought the monster wasn't real and only just a dream because those thoughts only for babies (as Conor put in as) but the monster is real.

Five-loves means the story is really, really awesome. It makes you keep flipping the pages and increase your eagerness to know more or what will happen next. Please read this book, it's absolutely worth it!
