Publisher Marketing:
From the dark imagination of New York Times bestselling novelist Daniel Kraus - co-author with Guillermo del Toro of THE SHAPE OF WATER (which as a film won the Academy Award for Best Picture) - comes a Halloween crime story that's like nothing you've ever read before.

 

In a ruined house at the end of Yellow Street, an angry outcast hatches a scheme to take revenge for all the wrongs he has suffered. With the help of three alienated kids, he plans to hide razor blades, poison, and broken glass in Halloween candy, maiming or killing dozens of innocent children. But as the clock ticks closer to sundown, will one of his helpers - an innocent himself, in his own streetwise way - carry out or defeat the plan?

 

Told from the child's point of view, in a voice as unforgettable as A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, Kraus' novel is at once frightening and emotional, thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud funny. It'll make you rethink your concepts of family, loyalty, and justice - and will leave you double-checking the wrappers on your Halloween candy for the rest of your days.
Review Quotes:
"I never miss a book by the remarkable Daniel Kraus and Blood Sugar exceeds all expectation. A Stephen King tale told by a pidgin Artful Dodger, it's a twisted little miracle with a sneaking, beating heart." -- Megan Abbott
"a very poignant and dark look at life in urban America" - Every Read Thing
"an eye-opening look at what some have to do to survive. "-Library Journal
"Cutting-edge horror, dark thriller, tragic coming-of-age story--they're all here but blended in a waythat's entirely new" - Booklist Starred Review
