I absolutely love Ellen Hopkins. She has become my favorite author. She has such a fascinating way of writing. Like the majority of her books, I definitely give it a 5 star review. I was hardly able to out the book down! This series, Crank, is my #1 favorite! ( )

I read this book when I was 22. I've never been addicted to drugs or had any thoughts about experimenting, however I still felt the need to read it. The way the words are structured on the page was just as important as the content itself. Addiction is real, and difficult to break. When my brother became addicted to crystal meth and overdosed, strange how this book crossed my mind. I felt that I saw his dilemma and realized his struggle better than most of those in my family. While parents may be afraid to share this information with their children, the temptation and risks are out there. This book would be a great guide to start the conversation because it's more than "Just Say No." ( )

After reading this I definitely can't wait to continue on with the Crank trilogy and find out what happens with Kristina next. I love the writing and I definitely want to read all of Ellen Hopkins books now. ( )

This was about a 2.5 star for me. I understand why it is popular and the theme is important. However, some of the verse was just not for me. There were poems that were brilliant and others I found mundane. The sculpted verse felt like a gimmick on the less engaging poems. ( )

It feels weird to say that I liked this book due to its subject, but it was really good. While reading this story, I thought of how believable it was, everything that happened. I think that every D.A.R.E. program should use parts of this book.

This is about Kristina a girl addicted to crank. She makes a lot of terrible choices and yet keeps doing drugs. It really shows you what it is like to actually be addicted and not just saying that she is. Most of the time I found myself wanting to yell at her for how stupid she was being.

This book portrays the downward spiral really well. Give this to at risk teens. ( )

Crank

In Reno, Nevada lived an average teenage girl and her average suburban family. Nearby in Albuquerque, New Mexico lived her deadbeat father. Kristina Snow was her name. She led a normal life, yet blended into her surroundings. A trip to visit her father turned her life around completely.

Upon her arrival, she meets the boy who would do this to her. This book shows the perspective of many teenage girls who struggle with drug abuse today. Often, two sides are shown once the drugs become an influence. In this book, the voice is split between Kristina; the good half, and Bree; the darker, newer half. I felt it helps you understand the story better because you can see the changes taking place in the main character.

Adolescents frequently trust their peers almost too much. We are constantly seeking acceptance from our peers around us, and when someone decides they've "fallen in love with you" or wants to be your "best friend forever", are we going to "Just Say No"? I don t think so. The majority of young people would do a lot of things to maintain that new found acceptance.

Bree has a romantic relationship with three different boys in this story. The first, introduces her to meth. Adam, (or Buddy)was the boy Kristina was sure of being her first love. The second, Brendan, manipulated Bree using meth and ultimately raped her, taking her virginity. Last but definitely not least in Bree's book was Chase. He and Bree experimented with drugs, and endured a lot together. Chase was the boy who made Bree reconsider Buddy as her first love.
Kristina finds coming home to be a lot more trouble with Bree taking over her mind. The storyline shows Kristina slowly turn into Bree; taking risks, being outgoing and mysterious, and flirting with different boys. She takes charge, and the rush of the meth allows her to maintain.
