The Lovereading4Kids comment

A terrify and deeply moving story about four teenagers trapped in the Bin. They are odd balls, misfits, maybe even a bit mad but they are smart enough to know that Dr Dearly is a real danger to them. But how can they escape? Can Nail help them? Does he really have Angel Blood? A challenging novel about daring to be different.


Angel Blood by John Singleton

The nurses call this place the Bin. We have to get out. We have to run away before they hurt us for good. But there's no escaping Dr Dearly and his brutality - is there? Four extraordinary children face a terrifying ordeal. Their only hope is local hard-case Nail - but has he got what it takes to save them?

About the Author

John Singleton
John Singleton was sent to a grim boarding school where, he says, you were bullied stupid and ritually humiliated - which may have something to do with the fictional appearance of Lazarus House and Big Mother in his novel Star. He then became an accountant, a disastrous move, and was quickly back studying English and training to be a teacher. He spent the rest of his professional life teaching kids and students the power of language and the pleasures of reading and writing. He is the author of Star, Skinny B, Skaz & Me and Angel Blood, powerful novels for young adults, and lives with his wife in Kent.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
