On My Wishlist (19)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: Crank by Ellen Hopkins.

Crank by Ellen Hopkins
Publication date: October 4th, 2004

Kristina Georgia Snow is the perfect daughter: gifted high school junior, quiet, never any trouble. But on a trip to visit her absentee father, Kristina disappears and Bree takes her place. Bree is the exact opposite of Kristina -- she's fearless.
Through a boy, Bree meets the monster: crank. And what begins as a wild, ecstatic ride turns into a struggle through hell for her mind, her soul -- her life.

So I know that this one has been out for several years, but since I don't actually have the money to buy any more books, it's on my wishlist until I have. I've been wanting to pick up one of Ellen's books for a while now and I am intrigued by the fact that she writes her books in verse. I've heard that this story is quite harsh and intense, and I cannot wait to finally get my hands on a copy.

  1. I've heard good things about this one, so I definitely need to give this a chance as well. I love verse novels, so I might need to pick it up soon.

    Thanks for reminding me. ;)
