Are you a reader, teacher, or librarian who loves YA nonfiction? Then we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you today: the chance to win one of five copies of J. Marin Younker’s Bleed, Blister, Puke, and Purge.
“Bleed, Blister, Puke, and Purge exposes the pus-filled, messy past of American medicine, from grave robbing for cadavers to sawing off limbs in under a minute to morphine-laced children’s medicine to the death of an American president who died at the hands of his physicians,” said Younker in our feature with her last year. “In the 21st century, we tend to view medicine as sterile, scientific, and exacting. But it wasn’t until the 1880s that science and American medicine overlapped and the public demanded true change and modernization of the medical profession. Bleed, blister, puke, and purge was a regular part of medical treatment for hundreds of years!”
Bleed, Blister, Puke, and Purge is available now.
