From the Publisher:

Last Night I Sang to the Monsterwas chosen as one of the Top Ten YA Books of Fiction in 2010.

Zach is eighteen, bright, and articulate. He's also an alcoholic, in rehab instead of high school, but he doesn't remember how he got there. What's up with that?

Annotation:
In rehab instead of high school, 18-year-old Zach is recovering from alcoholism and a deeply painful childhood that he can't bear to remember. Supported by his therapist, and a loving, father-figure roommate, Zach gradually un-wraps the monster that he's hiding from, as he reluctantly explores his wildly fractured and unstable family. Filled with pain, poetry, and realism, this searing young adult novel is a School Library Journal Best Book of 2009.

Praise

"Offering insight into addiction, dysfunction and mental illness, particularly in the wake of traumatic events, Sáenz's... artful rendition of the healing process will not soon be forgotten." 09/28/2009

"Zach's first-person voice is compelling and heartbreaking. Sáenz' poetic narrative will captivate readers from the first sentence to the last paragraph of this beautifully written novel...." 08/15/2009
