Publisher's Summary

Kristina Georgia Snow is the perfect daughter: gifted high-school junior, quiet, never any trouble. But on a trip to visit her absentee father, she meets a boy who introduces her to crank. At first she finds it freeing, but soon Kristina's personality disappears inside the drug. What began as a wild, ecstatic ride turns into a struggle through hell for her mind, her soul, and her life.
Listen to the sequel, Glass.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Good just not for kids

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."

Enticing.

If you could sum up Crank in three words, what would they be?

Very, very captivating.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bree. She's very saucy!

Which character – as performed by Laura Flanagan – was your favorite?

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!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Unfortunately I could not, but I returned when I could.

Any additional comments?

Awesome story!

better than expected

I loved it! it was hard to put down. read beautifully! I love the way the reader did the different voices for each character. it's the same way I would have read it to myself in my head. I wasn't sure if I would like audio books but this one did it for me.

Extremely addicting

I loved the book. I listened to it on my commute to and from work daily and after the first half an hour I was hooked.

Narrator

The narrator is not my favorite. I’ve read this book multiple times and until hearing it read like this, I’d never hated the main character like I now do.
