Rated 5 out of 5 by from It'll make you feel There's so much power behind this story. Whether you are a young teenager going through angst or an adult recovering from harsh tomes, Crank will make you feel something in the pit of your gut. It's a story that had me reading non stop til I flipped the last page.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crank Amazing book! I have re-read this book (and subsequent series) about a dozen times. She writes her books in such a unique way that it pulls you in and every time you read it its like reading a new book. I have now read all of Ellen Hopkins books and continue to look forward to every new book she releases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crank This was the first Ellen Hopkins verse novel I read and I was impressed. The author weaves a heart-wrenching story of a young girl who gets addicted to drugs and the effect addiction has on the people closest to her. I was mesmerized by Ellen Hopkins' use of verse. Certain pages were written to be re-read in a different fashion, giving you hidden glimpses of the story. I just couldn't put the book down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED!! I really loved this book, I was skeptical at first because it is written in verses. But I was pleasantly surprised, it was awesome and the way she wrote the book is awesome. It took me like 3 hours not even to read it I could not put the book down and the story was awesome. Can't wait to read the sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intense! I couldn't put this book down. I got so into it, and it was even easier to get to know the characters because there were so few of them. I love Ellen Hopkins' books. She makes them so interesting and intense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-read for tweens! What an amazing story! This book reads a little like poetry with its oddball sentence structure and geometric lines but once you get used to it, it doesn't really matter. The book flows quite quickly into a rivetting tale of a good kid gone bad when she is introduced to the world of methamphetamines ("crank"). Based loosely on the author's real-life experience with her own daughter, you will be unable to put this one down. I read almost the entire book in one day - I literally could not walk way from this story. Every tween should read this as part of their curriculum -a cautionary tale for modern times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different then others. This book was written with imagination and creativity. I really enjoyed the poetic style of this book! You can understand the author's story, but you also need to think about what she has written. Overall a very good book!
