BAD BLOOD. BAD DRUGS. BAD BUGS. WELCOME TO THE FINGER. A Splatterfest with a Social Conscience from radical new voice in teen fiction, Steve Tasane. Peoples keep dyin' in the finger, the scuzzie old tower block where they put us antisociable families. Authorities say it dirty smack going round, but them bodies ain't all users ... an' they look like they die screamin'. Marshall O'Connor the First lives in the Finger with his mum and li'l bro.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Blood Donors does something almost impossible - it combines an utterly convincing setting and all-too-human characters with a story of nightmarish intensity. The language hums with energy and the pace is relentless. -- Anthony McGowan
A confident debut. The story succeeds in making the skin crawl and the flesh creep whilst also having more serious undertones around the nature of social and class prejudice. -- Jake Hope * Books For Keeps *
A fast paces excitement-packed book . . . reminding me somewhat of John Wyndham's 1951 classic The Day of the Triffids, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read * The School Librarian *
