CRANK, by Ellen Hopkins
Interest Level: UPPER GRADE
If you have ever thought about trying drugs cause you think it is cool, then you definitely need to read this book because I think it will change your mind. It is about this girl who is 16 fixing to turn 17 when she goes to visit her dad who does crank. (crystal meth) She starts hanging out with people who do the drug, and when she tries it she gets hooked on the monster. The story goes on to tell of how horrible the drug is. It totally consumes her life and nothing else matters. She goes from being a straight A student to down the drain real fast. There is also another book called GLASS--it is a sequel to this book.
