Quote Corner #33: Crank

Happy Tuesday, my wonderful readers! I hope you’re all doing well. ❤
This afternoon I will be sharing a few quotes that stood out to me in Ellen Hopkin’s debut novel, Crank.
Happy reading! 😉


I expected demands.
He gifted me with tenderness.
I expected ego.
He let me experiment.
I expected disrespect.
He called me beautiful.
I expected him to expect perfection.
He taught me all I needed to know.

The way things work, how
guys feel great, but make girls feel
cheap for doing
exactly what
they beg
for.
The way they get to play
you, all the while
claiming they love you and making you believe it’s
true
The way it’s okay to gift their heart one
day, a backhand the next, to move on to
the apricot
when the peach
blushes and bruises.
These things make me believe
God’s a man after all.

Have you ever had so much to say that your mouth closed up tight struggling to harness the nuclear force coalescing within your words? Have you ever had so many thoughts churning inside you that you didn’t dare let them escape in case they blew you wide open? Have you ever been so angry that you couldn’t look in the mirror for fear of finding the face of evil glaring back at you?

I mean, there I was, snorting crank with my dad, my boyfriend, and his other girlfriend.
Something majorly wrong with that picture.


Crank is the first Ellen Hopkins book that I read a few months ago. Having heard endless positive reviews of her writing, I think my expectations were a little too high going in, but I still enjoyed the book as a whole.
