My granddaughter loaned me "Crank" the prequel to this book. The prose writing style is, at times, is difficult to track when reading, but is much easier when listening to. The book is written in such a way that you do not need to read "Crank." The central character and a brief recount of her experiences are reported in the beginning. We have seen those TV commercials where the kids becomes addicted to Meth and someone says "I will only do this once. I won't be be like that guy!" This book is that commercial and it shows what they will do to get their fix of Meth or "The Monster" as Meth is referred to in the book. These books are excellent reads to understand the teenager who does drugs and what they experience. It also re-enforces the needs for parents and teenagers to talk and listen to each other on a frequent basis.
Ever wonder how someone let a drug ruin their life and why so many people are addicts and rot in prison for drug offenses? This story tells that story from a first person view and had me completely sucked in. Whether you have ever done a drug in your life, or have known people who have, this journey with this young girl will definitely make you see how it can happen. Scary. Frightening. Brilliant.
The Narrater did an amazing job!! When are getting fallout. I really wanna listen to that one. Ellen You Are A Phenomenal Writer. Thank You
