Crank Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Crank

Written in verse, 15-year-old narrator Kristina reveals how she became addicted to crank, and how the stimulant turned her from straight-A student to drug addict.

On a court-ordered visit to see her slimy and long-absent dad, she meets Adam. Soon, Adam introduces her to 'the monster' (there, she also unleashes a new personality, Bree). Her addiction grows, as does Bree's control over her. Her life changes quickly: Soon she's dating two guys, both of whom use crank; can't keep up with school, and loses her old friends.
