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.

Love this series!

I started reading her books when I came across Burned, Crank and Impluse at a thrift store. I read all 3 books within a 4 day weekend then I downloaded Glass and Fallout because I absolutely couldn't get enough of Ellen Hopkins writing. As a sibling of a herion addict I could never understand the how and why my brother could get the way he is, this series has helped me look at things from his point of view.

Grrrrrrr! Definitely leaving you hanging!!

Excellent book, I love the way this book begins exactly where the other one ends.. As I'm sure the 3rd & final book in this series will do.
This book, Glass, is a book that takes you into the depths of active addiction. The places that addict's say "I would never......" and then you do. The thought's of "should have, would have,?maybe?, I WILL change.... I WILL do what's best.... I'm still in control.... I'm not like that person"
This book bring's addiction in all of it ugliness front and center. It also very clearly shows the reader what it's like inside the mind of an Addict, shows how "easily" it can be to fall. Fall so deep you didn't even realize it, until it's to late.
Emily Hopkins is an amazing author, when you are reading or listening to one of her books, you can "see" the story unfold in your minds eye. Like a movie. And that my friend is a hard thing to accomplish, everything about this book, is real, raw and scarey.... The truth always is somehow.

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).
