Kristina’s descent continues in the New York Times bestselling sequel to Crank.
One little bit, my heart revs high, then settles into quick- step mode. How I’ve missed that race and pound. How I’ve missed the lack of control.
Crank. Glass. Ice. Crystal. Whatever you call it, it’s all the same: a monster.
Kristina thinks she can control it. Now with a baby to care for, she's determined to be the one deciding when and how much, the one calling the shots. But the monster is too strong, and before she knows it, Kristina is back in its grips....and it won't let go. She needs the monster to keep going, to face the pressures of day-to-day life. She needs it to feel alive.
The sequel to Crank, this is the continuing story of Kristina and her descent back to hell. Told in verse, it's a harrowing and disturbing look at addiction and the damage that it inflicts.---from the publisher
