BLOOD SPORT OUT NOW
Praise for Blood Sport
Jason’s trans identity is handled respectfully and realistically, which is expected from an #OwnVoices author like McAdam. Furthermore, this book is about a trans character but is not a coming out story, it is a murder mystery. This is both something the LGBT+ community has been asking for and will draw the interest of young people who would not usually pick up an LGBT+ book.
VERDICT A must-buy for libraries looking for diverse and compelling hi-lo books.
Blood Sport is a great read that is filled with twists and turns, and once the action begins the novel does not let up. That Blood Sport is written by a trans author allows for some subtleties and inside information that readers may not normally find in other texts containing this subject. The author does a great job of making Jason likeable and relatable to almost anyone reading the book, and hopefully this will allow for someone who is unsure or unfamiliar with trans issues to be able to see beyond any stigma.
Blood Sport is sure to grab male and female readers alike and keep them interested as they follow Jason and his quest for justice. The novel is a rip-roaring read that does exactly what it sets out to do – be engaging, highly readable, and incredibly thoughtful. I personally read the book in one sitting and, at the end, was really wanting more.
