Written in verse, 15-year-old narrator Kristina reveals how she became addicted to crank, and how the stimulant turned her from straight-A student to drug addict.

On a court-ordered visit to see her slimy and long-absent dad, she meets Adam. Soon, Adam introduces her to 'the monster' (there, she also unleashes a new personality, Bree). Her addiction grows, as does Bree's control over her. Her life changes quickly: Soon she's dating two guys, both of whom use crank; can't keep up with school, and loses her old friends.

K, So my library has this book under children's books and it's definitely not for anyone under 13 and unless you like poems or have a high reading level you may not like it nor grasp the concept.


Any other readers? Surprised

I just remember the back of it in Go Ask Alice. "Life was good, before the monster, afterwards, it was great, for awhile" or something like that. Where did you finally find it?

At least

School Library. But if you where to go to a book store I can't see why they wouldn't have it, or order it for you.

I saw it in a bookstore, but I didn't have any money left. I'll convince my sister that she wants it, then read her copy.
