first off i love ellen hopkins style and very insightful way of writing. knowing that this book is based (loosely) off the story of a loved on i hope that they are doing well now. but i must say this book was incredibly dramatic. kristina (or bree which ever name you know her by) is a fantastic character. i feel a lot of books always look for the way to show that there will always be a happy ending but there really isn't a true happy ending for all. kristina evolved in a way entirely new which is scary, but defines "page turner"

Ellen Hopkins' "Kristina" books are the books that not only got me into YA but got me loving books in verse. I'll be forever grateful because before reading her books I would have never guessed I'd fall in love with either one.
Glass, Crank, and Fallout (the Kristina books) are by far my favorites. I've loved her others as well. I'd urge anyone to at least try one of her books. Even if you're not into the genre, not into verse, think about giving it a try - they're fantastic.

Not as well written as , I found this book to be a good sequel. The story line is captivating to a subject matter I know little about. I am using it to discuss drugs and other choices they face. I appreciate the fact that the partying is not glorified, and it paints a grim picture of what a single bad choice can do to a teenager's future.

Very interesting. Gives you insight to how hard addiction can be. Well written, but a little slow. The ending was very good, so don't give up on it! It gets better with time.

Like all of Ellen Hopkins books, "Glass" is incredible. It is the sequal to "Crank", and it's all the more amazing because it is based on a true story about Ellen's daughter. But, like many other series, this second book is not nearly as good as the first.
A touching story about a girl and her walk with "the monster".
