He Is The Monster

Amy Ellis

from the book...

When Esther comes back at dawn on a school night, sheís expecting an argument with her parents at breakfast. Instead, the police arrest her father for molesting girls in their neighbourhood. As her father awaits trial and her mother wastes away with grief, Esther seeks comfort in the things that make her numb: parties, boys and her secret relationship. 

She is fine. 

Everything is fine until Esther meets Matthew, who refuses to be just another notch in her bedpost. Forced to confront her feelings, Esther has to decide whether to stay comfortably wild and numb or if itís time to start dealing with the painful reality of her shattered life. 

Written in verse, He is the Monster tells the heartbreaking story of loss and desire after learning that your loved ones arenít always who you think they are.
