#BookReview: Blood Sugar by Daniel Kraus


Synopsis: At the end of Yellow Street, in a ruined junkyard of a house, an angry outcast hatches a scheme to take revenge for all the wrongs he has suffered. 

With the help of three alienated neighborhood kids, he plans to hide razor blades, poison, drugs, and broken glass in Halloween candy and use the deadly treats to maim or kill 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?
About the Author: DANIEL KRAUS is a New York Times bestselling author. With Guillermo del Toro, he co-authored The Shape of Water, based on the same idea the two created for the Oscar-winning film.

Rating: 🌟🌟
My Review: The first part of this story was horrible for me to read.  The writing sounded like a drug trip and I just didn't mesh with it at all.  If I didn't love the Shape of Water so much I most likely would have just stopped reading this one.  I am glad that I finished it but its not a title that I think I would reread in the future.  The cover is freaking amazing and right up my ally but the story itself was pretty lack luster. 










“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
