Creature of the Night by Kate Thompson

An excellent book by Kate Thompson, set in rural Ireland and Dublin, about a family trying to get their lives back on track. Bobby, the main character, who despises his mother and is desperate to get back to his joyriding, mugging, drug-taking gang.

And in between is a story of the supernatural and murder long ago.

It’s not an easy read, with some brutal and abusive language, but the story grabs you and lets you go at exactly the right places, leaving you guessing, but hopeful.

Creature of the Night by Kate Thompson is available in the Teen Fiction section of the LRC and is also on this year’s Catalyst shortlist.
