Freedom to Read Week: Why Haven't I read You? (4)

A few years ago, Ellen Hopkins was scheduled to speak at a public young adult event, and because a few people took issue with her subject matter she was asked to withdraw from the event. So, the long-and-short-of-it is that the publicity led me to Crank; and I was blown away by the emotional turmoil and characters of the book.

So today, in honor of Freedom to Read week, I'm featuring the last book of the trilogy.

We Hear
That life was good
before she
                                                  the monster,

but those page flips
went down before
our collective cognition....
