Crank by Ellen Hopkins

Have you read this book yet? Well, you should! Crank is written in a prose format that tells the story of a young high school junior girl named Kristina.  Kristina was always a good girl with a bright future and straight A's.  She narrates her story on what happened to her when she visits her dad's place for a few weeks only to be replaced with Bree.  While visiting her father, Kristina's simple and innocent life seems to change for the worst in just a snap.  She is introduced to the ''monster'' also known as crank which can also be known as crystal meth..  From there, her life spirals out of control and she does nothing to stop.  Crank is loosely based on the author's daughter's story of addiction to crystal meth.  The book has been banned in many locations due to complaints of the book's drug use, language, and sexual themes, so please ask your parents if necessary.
