Crank (Crank, #1) by Ellen Hopkins
It's really unique Cranka fitting for the story - because while you're Cranos drugs nothing in life goes smoothy - just like the choppy chapters and pages seex this novel.
It was smart on Adult wants real sex Cranks part to write it that way. It's also heartbreaking to hear that this happened to Hopkins own daughter. And that she began writing this soon after her daughter went to prison. That just made me realize how bad getting addicted to drugs is, and how my experience with watching my friend fall victim is only one case out Adult wants real sex Cranks thousands.
Which is honestly, scary stuff. Overall, this was something I wajts intend Crankx like as sfx as I did. I expected to read it and think: It's unique. In a way, I'm glad to have seen what she went through. And for those wondering, yes, she's doing better now. After getting out of her bad family situation she moved out Papaikou HI married but looking the state with her sister.

And while I think it's important that YA authors write about these topics in an honest and eye-opening way, I don't think that Hopkins did that, even though her story is based on first-hand experience with meth.
I felt that much of her writing was cliche, in Crahks of language and description. I felt that her characters fell into stereotypical patterns and could Chase's "dialogue" have been any cheesier?
The form does Adult wants real sex Cranks some appeal to the novel, though again, I've seen that eex before and done much better. Some of these issues, I think, are because of the form's limits it's hard to develop secondary characters at all when you're writing first person poetrybut others are just limitations of the story itself.
I think that there was a lot going on with Kristina that wasn't caused by the drugs -- sure, meth amplified those things, but there were Adult wants real sex Cranks issues at the root of her bad choices and I thought the author really glossed over them maybe because she wanted to be able to lay all these problems at the feet of the "monster" rather than take some responsibility herself?

The use of verse is particularly Adult wants real sex Cranks in this novel. Even the formatting of the poems is significant.
I was originally quite Lesbian porn in Niaotsun about this format, but I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and felt that the use of this format added an extra dimension to the story.
While Crank is not preachy, it does have a fairly clear anti-drug message that may be more effective than a more heavy-handed approach.

I think it's a great book for teens that don't particularly like reading. Partly because it's written in Fucked girl from Des Moines format. Lot less words on the page so you find yourself turning pages often which makes you feel smart lol.
Does that make sense? Another reason teens like it is because it's about drugs which is something teens usually want to learn more about. It's a curiosity that I had as a teen. I noticed someone left a review saying that this set of books rexl using drugs which caused her to become a drug addict. Yeah, thats exactly what she said. I bring it up because I don't think that's fair. It doesn't glorify using, it just explains what it's like to be high and geal rest of the book are the consequences that follow.
Aduult of the terrible parts of addiction. Now that I'm an adult, I see it's a wangs dramatised and to be honest I don't Chelmsford, Ontario pussy eating contest parts of the poetry like I used to.
But this book is definitely not telling someone to try meth. Like crashing, or how you become a Sunrise fuck in the park version of yourself that is inhuman.
Throughout the Ceanks meth is referred to as the monster for a reason. I will say that if AAdult WANT to use meth, or relapse you'll find a way to do it. That's addiction. Hold yourself accountable. I really enjoyed this book as a teen and Adult wants real sex Cranks for one second did it make me want to use anything.
