Good morning! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy! ❤
Today I’m bringing you a review of my latest read, Crank by Ellen Hopkins. I had SUPER high expectations going into this book, and while I did enjoy the story itself as well as the writing style quite a lot, I didn’t love the novel as a whole.
Happy reading!! 🙂
In Crank, Ellen Hopkins chronicles the turbulent and often disturbing relationship between Kristina, a character based on her own daughter, and the “monster,” the highly addictive drug crystal meth, or “crank.” Kristina is introduced to the drug while visiting her largely absent and ne’er-do-well father. While under the influence of the monster, Kristina discovers her sexy alter-ego, Bree: “there is no perfect daughter, / no gifted high school junior, / no Kristina Georgia Snow. / There is only Bree.” Bree will do all the things good girl Kristina won’t, including attracting the attention of dangerous boys who can provide her with a steady flow of crank.
Have you read Crank? Is it on your TBR?
Have you read any of Ellen Hopkins’ other novels? Which one should I read next?
