    I am a student in middle school that is an avid reader, I have wrote reviews before and am very qualified to write this review. With every turn of the page of A Monster Calls by, Patrick Ness, you dive deeper and deeper into a suspenseful plot, you will not be able to set down this book. Patrick Ness went to the University of Southern California, some of his other books, include A Knife Of Never Letting Go, as well as More Than This. My opinion of A Monster Calls is that it is one of the best fantasy books I have read, the only complaint about this book I would have, is that in some parts of the book, it was lacking some action. Overall I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. A Monster Calls is about a boy named Conor whose mom is dying of cancer, and Conor keeps having a reoccurring nightmare. When he has the dream, he wakes up every time at 12:07 A.M. When he wakes up one night there is a monster in his backyard that is made out of a yew tree. The monster during the day is just a plain old yew tree in the cemetery behind Conor's house. The monster tells Conor three stories which lead up to an ending that finally tells you what you have been waiting for the entire book. An example in this book, that lead me to say that it was slow in some parts, was that in between stories, there were a lot of parts that I felt were unnecessary. Also, leading up to the first story I felt there was some nonsense. If I had to compare this to a book I have read, I couldn't, because it is completely off in its own awesome category. The type of person that would enjoy this book, would be someone that has a love for fantasy books, or someone that likes a sort of spooky story.

    No, I do not think he would be successful, because the more crazy and bright, and extravagant the more people that come. When more people come the more money he can raise for the charity because he will have more money.

    Learning how to code does not make you a nerd. Learning how to code is a very smart decision, because the way our world is heading, is in the way of technology. In the future learning how to code could be vital to any persons job.

    One advantage to not having currency is that it would make it safer to have money, because it couldn't fall out of your wallet or you couldn't just leave it somewhere. One disadvantage to having no cash is that homeless people would have to depend entirely on government aid, and people that are not used to technology and maybe don't own any cell phones, would not be able to pay for things, because they only have cash.
