Fallout (Crank, #3)
The stories of Autumn, Hunter and Summer, Kristina's three oldest children, are provoking, harsh, and sad. We see their childhoods from their point of view, and we feel their pain, their joy, and their ties, to a mother they don't really see or know. Hopkins tells us (shows us) how their mother's meth addiction fuels their dysfunction, how they are predisposed to alcohol, anger, anxiety---all because of the woman who brought them into the world. But this book holds out hope that these teens are strong, working against the odds to make their worlds a better place with each other, even including and accepting their mother, Kristina with all of her shortcomings.
