CRANK by Ellen Hopkins

Crank is about a girl named Kristina struggling with her meth addiction, "crank" or "monster." This is when Bree comes out and everything changes from then on out. Kristina battles with her other side (Bree) and ends up failing. Then Bree takes over, and her life begins to revolve around meth and a boy who ended up breaking her heart.

I gained a lot from reading this book, meth is a very powerful drug. Meth takes over your mind, you become addicted, needing it more and more. It also alters your state of mind making you do things you wouldn't normally do, in Kristina's case, sex.

Highly recommended although a little confusing at times.

Recommended for grades 9-12.
