Excellent companion to Ellen Hopkins' Crank and its sequels. YA authors describe in essays why they like Crank, why it is an important book for teens to read; experts on addiction write about the book from that perspective; and there is an essay from both the real life version of the main character and one from her stepfather, on how real life differed from the book, in this fictionalized memoir in verse. It made me appreciate Crank a lot more, seeing its importance to so many teens, and I already was impressed with the very well written poetry of it.
