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!

Excellent!

This story is soooo good I have listened to it over and over!, glass is even better. Fallout, the 3rd book is not as good. I wish Ellen would make more books like this. Your credit is well worth it!!!

Extremely captivating, realistic & uniquely written, brought to life by an amazing narrator! Uncomparable to any other book I've ever read/listened to.

Such a great book!

I read this book a couple of years ago and I absolutely loved it then, so I decided to listen to it this time. I still love the story so much. My only complaint is I felt the narrator just did not suit the main character. She did a good job though. I definitely would recommend this book!

Gritty, real, sad, but beautiful

Overall, I loved it. Way too short, though. I'm glad there's sequels but I wish there was more to the first one. There were a lot of parts that I felt could've gone more in depth and detailed. At first the narrator's voice irritated me and way sounded way too "teenager" in an annoying way, but as I got into the story it really grew on me and made it feel more authentic, like I was in high school again with a friend telling me her story. I love the poetic writing style.

Beware of trigger warnings. I wouldn't say it glamorizes drug use because it definitely shows the dark side, but detailed descriptions of getting high could be very triggering for those in recovery. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I think people should know ahead of time that there is a pretty brutal description of a date rape.
