Our featured author Ellen Hopkins served as editor to a host of other writers as they explore her books Crank and Glass, from the straight truth on the physical effects of methamphetamine addiction to the psychological consequences of keeping secrets (and how Hopkins' books have encouraged so many teens to reveal theirs).
Flirtin with the Monster includes an essay by Ellen's real-life daughter (the basis for the character of "Kristina") that tells her version of the events that inspired the books--along with perspectives from "Scott," "Jake," and ten-year-old "Hunter," the baby from Crank.
Good luck, readergirlz!
