In the third book of the trilogy that includes Crank and Glass, author Ellen Hopkins returns to Kristina Snow's story of drug abuse and reveals what Kristina's children have had to suffer.Told in poetry by the children: Hunter, Autumn, and Summer, and the mother, this book is raw and gritty. Readers will likely empathize with one or all of the children and feel pity for Kristina.The book deals with mature situations of drug and alcohol abuse, sexual situations, and abuse. It's not a pretty story but an important one. Addiction hurts not just the user but the entire family, and they all suffer from the Fallout.Recommended grades 9 and up. NOT recommended for middle school due to language, sex, alcohol and drug references, and mature themes.Recommended by Pamela Thompson, Library Media Specialist.See other reviews on her ya blog http://booksbypamelathompson.blogspot.com/ FALLOUT by Ellen Hopkins, Trailer by Teresa Schauer of Pettus, Texas http://booktrailersforall.com
