Although she was an established poet, journalist and freelance writer before the success of Crank, Hopkins is now an award-winning YA author with five bestselling novels in verse for teens. Her novels in verse attract many teen readers because of their realistic topics, authentic teen voice, and the appealing poetic format that is easy to read.

Read on to learn more about this talented writer including information about the writers and poets who influenced her, the inspiration behind her Crank trilogy, and her stand on censorship.

For sure if I found an author I liked, I read everything by that author I could find.

Afterwards, Brendan takes her home and makes her pay for the drugs. At home Kristina, still high and shaken up from the rape, writes a letter to Adam telling him she was raped. Soon though she abandons her letter and calls Chase to come over while her parents are out. Chase comes over and she tells him about Brendan before trying to persuade him to have sex with her. Chase says no, wanting to wait until she had healed from her rape.

However, she does end up having sex with him later in the novel. Kristina gets caught hitchhiking by a cop and goes to Juvenile hall , where she gets a direct connection to a meth lab in Mexico through an inmate. Once she is released from Juvenile hall, Kristina uses her mom's Visa card to pay for the illegal narcotic, and she takes her new supply to her druggie friends on "The Avenue".

At this part of the novel, Kristina has become a drug dealer, which she describes as making her instantly more "popular". Kristina now has a very large amount of crank on her hands, so she is getting high even more often.

This leads to her becoming more irritable, causing her relationship with her mom to become even more strained. Kristina is also not showing up to classes, because she is spending all of her time getting high and dealing drugs on "The Avenue". The story continues with Kristina discovering she is pregnant , soon after Brendan had raped her. Kristina spends the following days going through the symptoms of drug withdrawal. During this time in the novel, she believes that Chase is the father, having had sex with Chase a couple of weeks after being raped.

Details if other: Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Ellen Hopkins's semi-autobiographical verse novel, Crank, reads like a Go Ask Alice for the 21st century. In it, she chronicles the turbulent and often disturbing relationship between Kristina, a character based on her own daughter, and the "monster," the highly addictive drug crystal meth, or "crank.

While under the influence of the monster, Kristina discovers her sexy alter-ego, Bree: Soon, her grades plummet, her relationships with family and friends deteriorate, and she needs more and more of the monster just to get through the day. Kristina hits her lowest point when she is raped by one of her drug dealers and becomes pregnant as a result. In the author's note, Hopkins warns "nothing in this story is impossible," but when Kristina's controlled, high-powered mother allows her teenage daughter to visit her biological father a nearly homeless known drug user , the story feels unbelievable.

Still, the descriptions of crystal meth use and its consequences are powerful, and will horrify and transfix older teenage readers, just as Alice did over 20 years ago. Get A Copy. More Details Edition Language.

I was always trying different things—picture books, early chapter books, etc. And I did all those things simultaneously, searching for where I belonged as a writer. The real story: We took guardianship of him when he was just a baby and adopted him when he was not quite four years old. He is the light of our lives as well as the biggest pain!

He knows the whole story, of course, but considers us his parents, and we consider him our son. We lived: Rather than move we love our 1. The process had dust and some small delays.


But it was sooooooooo worth it. In we took guardianship of three grandchildren, who were at that time three, four and nine years old. They remain in our care full time. My parents were Republicans he was a businessman, after all.

The others are totally different stories and can be read in any order. If it interests you, I wrote them in this order: What happened at the end of Burned? Will there be a sequel? I purposely left the ending of Burned ambiguous, so readers could decide which way Pattyn goes.

But in my mind, suicide was not an option.

Revenge was. I never planned a sequel, but I have a story percolating in the back of my mind that could become a sequel. So maybe. The funny thing is, I never planned a sequel to any of my books not even Crank!
