Very well and honestly written. Different to anything I've come across before. ( )

In the words of my Buddy Read friend, this book was intense. It's the best way to describe it. I was going to read this book but ended up going with audio and all I can say is that I think that was the best choice I could have made for this one. Listening to this one, especially at 1.6x the speed as I do, sure adds a lot to this story. I went in not knowing what to expect but it was sure worth it.

This book is a wild ride that has real people feelings. I will be reading the next book as well as I can't wait to see how things progress from here. ( )

I remember seeing Crank in the library most of my young adult life, but never gravitating towards it. It never seemed my style. My style being, of course, historical fiction. I'm talking regency era love stories that always end happily. This story about the monsters inside of Kristina, called Bree and meth, was never a happy one, not even at the end when Kristina takes some autonomy and attempts to turn her life around for the sake of her unborn child. I didn't like Kristina, and really didn't like Bree. Most of all, I hated the monster, which ravaged everyone in its wake. However, the beauty in the verse I read made it physically impossible to stop reading until the very end. I could not put this book down. I had to know what the monster and Bree would get Kristina into next. This work was so well done, and so heartbreaking, because I know addiction happens to people all the time, all over the world. I enjoy watching Intervention, which is a reality TV show where families have surprise "interventions" for their loved ones who are addicts. This story reminded me a lot of that show. I can see why this book was challenged and banned. It's a lot to take in, and a lot of what is written basically glorifies drug abuse. I also think reading something like this as a teenager would expose teens to a very real story of how much drug addiction can ruin their lives and their families lives. It is a must read.

Genre: Poetry
Special Note: Challenged Book

It was good. The verse made the flow very nice. It's surprising how quick a read a 537 page book can be! The only thing is that I could not relate to and care about Kristina/ Bree the way I normally do with characters. I suppose that is because I couldn't sympathize with her. She made the wrong choices out of stupidity and carelessness. However, I do commend and respect her for some of her major choices. It is easy to tell that Kristina Georgia regretted her decisions. Overall, it is a very nice read! ( )

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.
