Crank, by Ellen Hopkins


Summary: When teenaged Kristina visits her estranged father, she is introduced to crank. Everything goes downhill from there.

My thoughts: I’m generally a fan of Ellen Hopkins books, and this one was good, but not as good as I expected. Maybe it’s just that I was younger when I read earlier Hopkins books? But this one didn’t seem as heart-wrenching and there were not surprises about what happened to Kristina when she started her downward spiral. Still a good book if you’re interested in teen realism, but nothing to write home about.

  1. I understand that this novel is written in verse. I have read a we modern books written like that and I have liked them. I actually think that I would enjoy more books written like that. What did you think of it here?
