One of the best tales I have encountered in many years. Stellar performance by Jason Isaacs. This is a story for teens and adults. At some point in everyone's life a monster will come calling.

A haunting, heartbreaking novel guaranteed to make you laugh, cry, and re-read. The audiobook, read by Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy!) is a stunning performance, and it's short enough that it won't overwhelm you, even if you're not an audiobook person.

A really great read and one that makes you think about mind over matter. Middle-schooler, Connor O'Malley, copes with his Mother's terminal illness, bullying at school and his relationship with his Grandmother and absentee Father. Psychology and fantasy become one as Connor works through the problems in his life. A short book on compact disc with an excellent reader. Some mature themes here, so best for teens.
