Teen Book Review

Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Rating 4

Reviewed by Elizabeth, grade 8

Crank is the first book in a series about a girl named Kristina, who takes a walk with the monster, and becomes hooked.  Her alter-ego, Bri, takes hold of her life, and, paired with the monster, destroys everything Kristina worked so hard to build up.  I would definitely recommend this title, and enjoyed reading this book because it really shows how drugs can really mess up a person's life, and how even one time can get you hooked.  How does Kristina fix all the broken pieces?  Find out when you read Crank.
