A crucial, genre-bending tale, equal parts Ned Vizzini and Patrick Ness, about the life-saving power of friendship. Solomon and Ash both experienced a traumatic event when they were twelve. Ash lost all memory of that event when she fell from Solomon’s treehouse. Since then, Solomon has retreated further and further into a world he seems to have created in his own mind. One that insulates him from reality, but crawls with foes and monsters . . . in both animal and human form. As Solomon slips further into the place he calls Darkside, Ash realizes her only chance to free her best friend from his pain is to recall exactly what happened that day in his backyard and face the truth—together. Fearless and profound, Sam J. Miller’s follow up to his award-winning debut novel, The Art of Starving, spins an intimate and impactful tale that will linger with readers.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A stunning and intimate new novel about the effects of trauma on individual lives as well as the connections that allow people face their own incredibly difficult pasts…Readers will be unable to forget both the pain and eventual freeing illumination Solomon and Ash find in the past.” Booklist (starred review)
“Art and storytelling are featured both as coping mechanisms and tools by which the survivors find a voice and stand up for the truth…A balanced mix of realistic and fantasy elements keeps the action going and appeals to fans of both elements. A combination of Andrew Smith, Laini Taylor, and John Corey Whaley that crosses genre borders and will win over readers.” School Library Journal
“Miller delivers a tale of friendship and dovetailing realities…A darkly complex read.” Kirkus Reviews
“Miller offers no easy answers for fighting the all-too-real monsters in our lives but still allows space for hope, healing, and above all, bravery.” Rebecca Roanhorse, Hugo, Nebula, and Campbell Award-winning author
“Equal parts fragile, fierce, and mind-blowing, Destroy All Monsters is powerful testament to friendship and the things we’ll do for the people we love.” Kathleen Glasgow, author of Girl in Pieces
“A book that masterfully combines the restless, electric imagination of sci-fi/fantasy with the luminous, beating heart of a contemporary coming-of-age story.” Jeff Zentner, award-winning author of The Serpent King
