Description: Kristina is a young girl forced to visit her father in Albuquerque. Whilst there she meets a guy named Adam and suddenly her world is turned upside down as she enters a toxic relationship filled with sex and drugs. Her life gets sucked down the drain as she finds herself addicted to Crank THE drug. THE monster in her life. This book is written in many different poetic styles, including concrete and acrostic, with very short chapters. An easy read, but a deep read.

“But that’s not exactly cool. So you sit and smile pretending like it’s not even fazing you, not touching you at all. So he look you in the eye, trying to measure you, find a hint of reaction. And he says, Tell me how you feel. So you can’t stand it one more second, and you close your eyes, daring him to kiss you. So he does, and it’s electric, high voltage, stun-gun strength desire jolting sinew and bone. And he asks, How ‘bout another line?” (92-93)
