Thirsty

By M. T. Anderson

“Entertaining, disturbing, memorable, and sophisticated, this mortality tale will continue to haunt after the last pages are turned." — School Library Journal

All Chris really wants is to be a normal kid, to hang out with his friends, avoid his parents, and get a date with Rebecca Schwartz. Unfortunately, Chris appears to be turning into a vampire. So while his hometown performs an ancient ritual that keeps Tch’muchgar, the Vampire Lord, locked in another world, Chris desperately tries to save himself from his own vampiric fate. A savagely funny tale of terror, teen angst, suspense, and satire from National Book Award winner M. T. Anderson.

  • Before Twilight, there was Thirsty – a funny and smart YA novel tapping into the perennial appeal of vampires.
  • In paperback with an appealing new cover, an edition to draw in the many fans M.T. Anderson has earned over the decades--and the new ones he'll gain with Landscape With Invisible Hand, publishing the same month.
  • The social commentary and sophistication of Anderson's National Book Award Finalist Feed in a satirical horror package.
