Loosely based on a true story, Crank, is a story about a quiet innocent, smart girl named Kristina. Everything is going well for her until she spends a summer with her drug addicted dad. There she tries drugs and falls in love with a boy. She unleashes this monster inside of her called Bree. When Kristina goes home, she changes friend groups and starts ditching class to do drugs. She soon completely looses control of her mind and makes bad decisions that ruin her life. This book is written in poetry.

I enjoyed this book very much. I picked it up not knowing what it would be about and I was pleasantly surprised. I began to fear for Kristina and would hope that she made the right decisions. The epilogue at the end of the novel, Fallout, was so well written and almost made me tear up. This is definitely one of the best books I have ever read.
