Junior Book of the Month: More Than This

More Than This by Patrick Ness

More Than This

More Than This by Patrick Ness open explicitly outlining the drowning death of a boy (Seth) in the wintry cold ocean. But after Seth’s apparent demise, he awakes outside of his childhood home in a neighbourhood that has been abandoned and left to decay. Both the readers and Seth must determine whether he has in fact died, and why he has returned to his childhood residence, where something unthinkable happened many years ago. Ness crafts all of his novels with a raw intensity, at a break neck pace, and with an astonishing amount of creativity. More Than This is a novel filled with stunning revelations, heartbreaking writing, and an unforgettable premise. It is available to reserve from the Haliburton County Public Library.
