This is the second book in the Crank series by Ellen Hopkins. I'm not usually big on reading but these books have kept me on the edge of my seat and reading. It follows a young girl and her struggle with "the monster" or her addiction to meth. Ellen Hopkins does a wonderful job putting the reader right into the story. There aren't many dull moments as just about anything can happen when you are fighting a meth addiction. Wonderful story. I would recommend to pretty much any teen.
