Listen to the sequel, Glass.

"Hopkins writes in free-verse poems that paint painfully sharp images...detailing how powerful the "monster" can be. The poems are masterpieces of word, shape, and pacing, compelling readers on to the next chapter in Kristina's spiraling world." (School LIbrary Journal)
This duo was well written and eye opening. I listened to it because my 14 year old read "Crank." I do not think that these books are for that age group. I highly recommend that you listen to these books prior to allowing your kids read them. In my opinion these books are for older teens 17 and up. Nothing against these books as I said they are very good just a little too much info for kids under 17, especially "Glass."
Very, very captivating.
Bree. She's very saucy!
Kristina. At first I didn't like her as Kristina (In my head she sounded very different), but I soon came around. She does a great job!
Yes. Unfortunately I could not, but I returned when I could.
I really enjoyed this book. I finished it just under two days. I usually hate reading, but with the format of the book I found it a lot easier to comprehend and get through it without getting bored. I was expecting it to be deeper though. I read reviews and comments on the book online and people were saying how they couldn't get halfway through the book due to how deep it was. I was perfectly fine though. Towards the end of the book I almost shed a tear, but managed to hold it together. The book is very amazing and touching and I recommend it to anyone willing to read it.
Ellen Hopkins is an amazing author. This is the second time I've read this book (the first time was in high school) her words are poetic and beautiful and she never fails to tell an amazing, sad, yet heart warming story.
