Publisher's Summary

Crank. Glass. Ice. Crystal. Whatever you call it, it's all the same: a monster. And once it's got hold of you, this monster will never let you go.

A sequel to Crank, this harrowing and disturbing look at addiction finds protagonist Kristina Snow thinking she can use drugs yet control the consequences. Now with a baby to care for, she's determined to be the one deciding when and how much, the one calling the shots. But the monster is too strong and, before she knows it, Kristina is back in its grips. She needs the monster to keep going, to face the pressures of day-to-day life. She will do anything for it, including giving up the only thing that makes her truly happy.

Listen to the first book, Crank.

A Wonderful followup to "Crank"

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.

Good Read

I love Ellen Hopkins and I have read all of her books multiple times. Having her books on Audible is a blessing.

This is a gut-wrenching story based around the author's own daughter. Well worth the read.

My only slight complaint is how the narrator uses a scratchy voice for all male characters, but that's easy enough to get past.

Wow. An amazing view into the life of a junkie

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.

Amazing!

Not only is this a gripping story, you just can’t seem to step away from. The narrator, Laura is amazing. Her voice. Her cadence, is what made me want to come back. I read my book along with her. I was addicted to not putting the book down (no pun intended).

Realistic, but Less Impactful as an Adult

I loved Ellen Hopkins books growing up, maybe to a fault. As my 20s and some hard times have set in, I decided to revisit the novels. Glass is definitely well written, and with a few exceptions it smacks of the truth. But having seen more of the world and come face to face with drugs and their abuse, it's a little less impactful. Reads easily, and is a good cautionary tale, but doesn't pack the same emotional punch. Definitely YA Lit.

typical drug addiction story

Would you try another book from Ellen Hopkins and/or Laura Flanagan?

i do not like the narrator in this book....a little dramatic

Would you recommend Glass to your friends? Why or why not?

no not really

Did Laura Flanagan do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes she did..i just do not like her voice

Was Glass worth the listening time?

not really
