I had fun making this picture with some help from Notability.
I also had a great time reading this book. It was fascinating. And creepy. I commented to a few in my online reading community that it reminded me a bit of Patrick Ness’ A Monster Calls. There is truth… and there is fantasy… and it’s difficult to know if or when the two cross. The whole time reading The Nest, I was asking myself, “Are the angels real or in his head? Are they the good guys or the bad guys?”
I’m certainly not going to give it away here. Totally mystifying and intriguing. And did I mention creepy?
