Crank

January 31, 2008
By Natalie Howard, Dell Rapids, SD

Recently I read the book “Crank” by Ellen Hopkins. I thought this book was really…extreme, this young girl goes through so much over just a few months, it is so crazy. I must say though, it was very well written and it kept me interested in the book. I like the format it was written in, with the poetry and what not, it was very fast reading and almost pleasing to the eye. I do not read very often, but for some reason after reading this book, it has made me want to read more. The book captured me and I could follow it so easily like there was a movie playing through my mind. I loved reading it because it took me away from the world and brought me into a completely different one where I didn't have to worry about my own issues. This was such a good book and I know lots of other people who would agree with me. This book kinda takes you and puts you and someone else's shoes and it makes you think about life in a different perspective. I guess through this book I discovered the beauty of reading and imagination. I have been reading so much more since this book and I am really enjoying it. I am definitely going to read the sequel to this book, and if you are looking for a good book to read, I would highly recommend this one. It is so well written and it draws you in so that you won't want to put it down.

The only books that you have to read in order are Crank then Glass then Fallout.
