One of my favorite authors

You will love this book it's interesting and crazy if your into poem like book these books will definitely be a must to read

A real page turner

A great book. Couldn’t put down. About a girl struggling with addiction. I laughed and cried. I would definitely recommend. Already starting the 3rd one.

Very interesting story!!

I could NOT put this down! Now I was surprised that this book was composed of static poetry, and not traditional prose. At first that change was a little hard to swallow, but you get used to it because the story was so good. You will LOVE this book.

Love these books!

Ellen Hopkins books are always great! The crank series which includes crank, glass, and fallout feel so real. I believe this is because they are a fictional story loosely based on her daughter's story. Definitely read it!

Emotionally Touching

The sequel to the popular novel "Crank" definetly strikes your heart. I found myself constantly doing things that books normally do not make me do. For instance I found myself yelling at the characters and raging on about what was and wasn't fair. The characters hit me with full force and now I'm more attached to them than ever. All though "Glass" can be quite depressing it truly unleashes the truth about the drug meth or as Kristina/Bree calls it - the monster. This monster comes in different forms but the outcome is always the same - it will ruin you. Something to note is that all of Ellen Hopkin's novels are written in poetry format. I was very surprised after reading her first book at how talented she is. The format is original and even though there aren't as many words as a normal book, it still puts a lot of things into those few words. Kristina used to be a good girl - used to have real friends - until she met the monster. In this second book crank/glass/the monster has officially taken over her life. While trying to raise her baby boy, Hunter while dealing with her deadly drug addiction, life is rough as ever. Soon even a loving family and friends becomes scarce. But of course do you really need a friend while you're having such a blast with glass? Bree says no but Kristina says yes. Bree is the part of Kristina that's wild, wreckless, and not well. Kristina is the side that is good, has common sense, wants to stop. Will this girl do what's right or will her bad decisions lead her into even more trouble?


This book was inspirational and emotional. If you read the first book, Crank.. then this sequal is deffenitly a must! it takes you on a journey, that you feel like you are in yourself. Deffenitly one of the best books I have read in a long time.


This book is as addicting as glass is described to be. I got this book on a Friday, after a long time waiting, and finished it the next Monday. I am not a reader, I just don't enjoy reading that much but this book, as well as Crank, is one of those books you just can't put down. An excellent sequel to Crank. I can only hope that there are more books to come. I think Ellen Hopkins is an amazing writer! She has wow-ed me once again!

Gritty, raw tale of drug addiction

Kristina thinks she has a control over crack. Now with a baby to care for, she's determined to be the one in control. But the monster is too strong, and before she knows it, Kristina is back in its grips. She needs the monster to keep going, to face the pressures of every day life. Once the monster has control over Kristina, she'll do anything for it, including giving up the one person who gives her unconditional love. Her baby. GLASS is the sequel to CRANK. This story continues the tale of Kristina and how the drug ends up controlling her life. Gritty and raw, this tale shows the effects crack has on an individual and their love ones. Ellen Hopkins does a great job of taking us on this painful trip that was loosely based on her own daughter's experiences with the monster. This is a haunting tale that will stay with the reader. I'd highly recommend this book to those who know loved ones in the grip of the monster. Even though Kristina loses her way, the reader can't hope that maybe she'll be able to climb out of the abyss--back to her family and to her son, Hunter.

What We've All Been Waiting For...

Finally... we'll get to grow with Katrina/Bree some more... in the Sequal of Crank... Glass should be packed with more news of how she is going by with the baby, trying to stay off meth, and all the rest of the things crashing in around her life. i've been hoping and praying that i would get to find out. ... i wish i could grab the book up now and start reading it. now that i know there is a sequal and more to the life of the person, i have to bite my nails while i wait! ... ellen hopkins is a brilliant and stunning writer - with her "poetic novels" that keep you glued to the next page - and by the end of the book ( which takes me about 2 hours to read now because i've read them so many times ) you look at the white page, and realize you are finished - but saddened because you need to know more... and now we are getting our chance!
