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.


What the Critics Say

"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."

Amazing! :)

Would you consider the audio edition of Crank to be better than the print version?

No, because I haven't read the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Crank?

When she gets raped and when she finds out Brendan is the father to her baby.

What does Laura Flanagan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice compliments the character she's portraying.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It didn't make me laugh or cry, but there was a moment or two where my jaw dropped.

Any additional comments?

Overall this was a very good book, and I enjoyed it.
