Crank Trilogy By Ellen Hopkins

Crank Trilogy (Crank #1-3)


By Ellen Hopkins

The heart-wrenching bestselling Crank trilogy shows that addiction is never just one person’s problem.
 I give this series 5 stars... I loved it, it made me laugh it made me cry. I was sad when it ended,it was really amazing. I love the way Ellen Hopkins writes. The poetry made it seem more intense more real. It is the reason I have now purchased more of Ellen Hopkins books. Also it does not look like it but her books are a fast read. You may look at the amount of pages and think I'm crazy, but I read all of them in a little under 2 days each, now be it the poetry or the fact that I just couldn't put them down, I don't know. I do want to warn parents tho,this series has a lot of brutal honestly about addiction and what it causes, if you are censoring your children, then you may want to read it first. I am 40 and I loved it. I think however I may tell my daughter she has to wait till shes 17 before I let her read them. BUT if you know someone heading down this road, or has already been there, or is there, this series is something you should read, it is amazing how well she captures the road of addiction. Something not easy to really do... I think she did an amazing job,and I recommend this series to all...

Crank Trilogy

Kristina is the perfect daughter: gifted high school junior, quiet, never any trouble. Then she meets the monster: crank. And what begins as a wild ride turns into a struggle for her mind, her soul—her life.

Crank. Glass. Ice. Crystal. Whatever you call it, it’s all the same: a monster. Kristina thinks she can control it. Now with a baby to care for, she is determined to be the one deciding when and how much, the one calling the shots. But the monster is strong, and before she knows it, Kristina is back in its grip . . . and it won’t let go.

Nineteen years after Kristina met the monster—crank—her three children are reeling from the consequences of her decisions. Instead of one big, happy family, they are desperate tangle of scattered lives united by anger, doubt, and fear. There is more of Kristina in her children than they would ever like to believe. But when the thread that ties them together brings them face-to-face, they’ll discover something powerful in each other and in themselves—the trust, the hope, the courage to begin to break the cycle.
