Waiting On Wednesday 31

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine

Fallout by Ellen Hopkins
Margaret K. McElderry/September 14, 2010

It moves from the story of Kristina Snow, who became addicted to crystal meth (aka crank, "the monster") in Crank, and whose story continued with Glass, to the next generation. Hunter, Autumn and Summer--three of Kristina Snow's five children--live with different guardians and go by different last names. What they share is an absent mother whose real love for the past 20 years has been crank. The novel shifts among their three narratives and incorporates news items that also shed light on their family history--one riddled with the ravages of addiction.

Why I Want This:  I read both Crank and Glass in 8th grade and loved them..which remains me, I need to check them out from the library soon to reread them! These books are some of the most rawest and intense books I've ever read. I can't wait to read this! Ellen Hopkins is amazing and I still need to read 1 or 2 of her other books.

Sounds intense but a really important read. I've never read anything by Ellen Hopkins before but this is going to change, I need to get my hands on a copy of Crank and Glass!
