Jared, I heard this book was intense. How has it been so far? What is the Author's writing style? What Chapter are you on? What has been the most memorable part thus far?

It is very intense and deep. It has been very interesting and hard to put the book down. The authors writing style is like a journal or dairy but also like poetry. I'm on chapter 4 and probably when she meets Adam.

Jared,

Have you noticed the "alternative narrative"??

I love that style.

Post Re: "Crank" by: Ellen Hopkins
hey guys!
i just wanna give you all a heads up!!
The book has a lot of symbolic elements to it.
It also has a lot of foreshadowing.
If you don't quite understand a sentence or page, re-read it because there is more than one narrator and it can get kind of confusing!!
I really hope you guys LOVE this book because I know how much I loved it!!

Also, if anyone wants to read more into the series(: i have all of her books....literally!
So just ask and I'll let you guys borrow them!
