Recommend Me (2)

Friday, January 29, 2010

Recommend Me is a weekly event, hosted by Kate from The Neverending Shelf, in which participants will pick one of their all time favorite reads to share. This could be a book that your read yesterday or years ago.


This week, I recommend:

Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Kristina Georgia Snow is the perfect daughter: gifted high school junior, quiet, never any trouble. But on a trip to visit her absentee father, Kristina disappears and Bree takes her place. Bree is the exact opposite of Kristina -- she's fearless.

Through a boy, Bree meets the monster: crank. And what begins as a wild, ecstatic ride turns into a struggle through hell for her mind, her soul -- her life.

This was definitely a very raw, and terrifyingly real story. It shows what someone’s life will become like when addicted to drugs. Crank is just an amazing and so full of truth read that I recommend this to both teenagers and adults.

You can read my review here.

Other books within the series:

Glass by Ellen Hopkins

Fallout by Ellen Hopkins (coming Sept. 14, 2010)

I owe the Crank/Glass box. I bought it right after I read Impulse. Her books are incredibly good!

Wow, is the only word that comes to mind. This book has it all, vampires, witches, werewolves, time traveling, ghouls, demons, faeries, and more. I can't wait for the next book in this series!. I read it in one day as I could not put it down.So much happened in this book, I felt as though I had already read two or three books in a series. Showalter could have easily made 2 or 3 books out of this and you would not have felt cheated. I have always loved her adult books but she has outdone herself with her first YA paranormal.
