Glass by Ellen Hopkins


"Crank. Glass. Ice. Crystal. Whatever you call it, it's all the same: a monster. And once it's got hold of you, this monster will never let you go."

A sequel to Crank, this harrowing and disturbing look at addiction finds protagonist Kristina Snow thinking she can use drugs yet control the consequences. Now with a baby to care for, she's determined to be the one deciding when and how much, the one calling the shots. 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 day-to-day life. She will do anything for it, including giving up the only thing that makes her truly happy.


Glass was one seriously depressing book. It was written really well, but dang it was depressing. I liked the first book Crank, better. The downfall of this usually-smart teenager is really hard to read about. I think what bugged me that most was that she knew all along what her problem was, and that she needed to fix it. But she would never follow through and actually stop her addiction. There was a constant going back and forth of “I should be doing this” and her doing the drug. In this book, her addiction gets even worse. She tries new forms of Meth and it ends up tearing her life apart even more.
Glass was really addicting, but it was also really hard to read. I recommend it if you don’t have a problem with reading hardcore books.

Couldn't agree more that this book was a very depressing yet compelling read, although personally I preferred this book to Crank. Have you read any other Ellen Hopkins books?
