Jesse has sworn to protect his sister, Rachel, no matter what. It’s a promise that cannot be broken. A promise made in blood. But, when it comes down to life or death, how can he find the courage to keep it?

Set on the back roads of Australia, Blood is a boy’s odyssey through a broken-down adult world.

‘Many of us have known for a long time what a wonderful storyteller Tony Birch is. Blood confirms it – and how. The terrain is hard, unflinching but also imbued with a deeply resonant humanism. For at its heart there is Jesse, the young narrator whose voice is urgent and compelling, sweet and direct.’ Christos Tsiolkas
