Kristina Snow is a good third year high school student. But when she visits her drug-dealing father, she is introduced to crystal meth, or 'crank.' Kristina quickly develops a drug alter ego named Bree, who is fast, sexy, and daring. But Bree's insatiable need for the monster, crank, drives her further into perilous behavior. Written in free verse, Crank is based on Ellen Hopkins' experience with her own daughter.
