I've had this book for a LONG time, and I have finally finished it!

I definitely enjoyed it, even though it broke my heart. The emotions and situation that Conor is going through feel so authentic and real, even though he is accompanied by this fantastical monster. The illustrations are so gorgeous, and they are what drew me to pick up the book in the first place, however the initial spookiness that I thought was there turned into perfectly atmospheric dread while I was reading.

Overall this book is HEAVY. It is a little painful to read, but definitely worth it.
