Book Review: Crank

Original blurb published on January 1, 2012.

It sounds like a weird book: it is written entirely in poetry (mostly free verse) and tells the story of a teenage girl's addiction to and struggle with meth. Not to pun on the theme, but I found it totally addictive. I rushed out and read both of the sequels (even begging my local library to order the second one for me), and I plan to do more Ellen Hopkins in the coming year. It's a thick book, but it goes quickly because of the form.
