Crank Tough-o-Meter

By Ellen Hopkins

Tough-o-Meter

(7) Snow Line

If you skimmed through Crank and felt like all the white space is going to make reading this book a breeze, think again—the novel may be structured as a series of poems, but the format actually makes it more challenging rather than simple.

Through poetry, Hopkins presents a fragmented picture of how crank changes Kristina's life, one that really requires you to pay attention and analyze each poem in order to discover what's really happening. From the way Hopkins constructs dialogue to the structure of each piece, this book requires you to put on your analytical thinking cap to really get the whole picture of the story.
