I would agree with some of my fellow readers that I was slightly fearful that this book would be very similar to the first one. However it was nothing like a repeat of the first book. In this book Kristina gets in way over her head by thinking she can control the monster. All she wanted is to feed the need and keep at a maintenance level to get through the day. On things leads to another until all is to much(without giving to much away).

This book shows how addicting crystal meth could be. An addiction is an addiction for life, it never goes away and this book is a good representation of that. Once you start with the monster will be part of your life if you want it to or not. I think if you want to know how a addiction can effect your life this is a great series to read.

This is sad journey for Kristina and I wish her the best.

A excellent sequel to Crank and so very depressing.

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.

This is a great sequel to Crank, and I like how it showed even more effects that meth can have on a person and their life. I kinda do wish that there was a book that took place while Kristina was pregnant with Hunter, and how she dealt with all that. Overall, I would recommend this book (and this series) if you want to know more about addiction and its effects.

Even more than in Crank, I think that this book shows the devastating effects meth can have on ones family and friends. Kristina goes to great lengths to use again, and she winds up in situations that hurt her child, sever the relationship she has with her mother, and twist the idea of love and how it should really feel.

The second book in Kristina's story, Glass shows her fall back into the world of meth and men. After the birth of her first son, Hunter, she is able to get clean for a period of time and try her best to mother. But slowly she drifts back into drugs and lack of responsibility. If you have read Crank you MUST read Glass and the final novel; Fallout as well. Hopkins shows that a sequel is capable of being as strong as the first - and the final chapter in the trilogy is better than the rest as well.

Very excellent, once again Ellen Hopkins has made her book stunning. I want to know what happens to Kristina though, and her baby, so i hope the story about what happened later on will continue in Fallout also. :D
