"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

"Full of suspense...extremely gritty." - BookReporter

"Blood Sugar is itself both a trick and a treat. Kraus's trick is in hiding a deeply emotional novel in the festive trappings of a Halloween story; the treat, of course, is the reward of reading something so gripping and, ultimately, rewarding." -Cemetery Dance

"Evoking both Jim Carroll's The Basketball Diaries and Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, it's intimate and utterly engaging, a suspenseful glimpse into the desperate lives of its disadvantaged protagonists." -Mystery Scene

"an eye-opening look at what some have to do to survive. "-Library Journal
