Hunter, Autumn, and Summer—three of Kristina Snow’s five children—live in different homes, with different guardians and different last names. They share only a predisposition for addiction and a host of troubled feelings toward the mother who barely knows them, a mother who has been riding with the monster, crank, for twenty years. Hunter is nineteen, angry, getting by in college with a job at a radio station, a girlfriend he loves in the only way he knows how, and the occasional party. He's struggling to understand why his mother left him, when he unexpectedly meets his rapist father, and things get even more complicated. Autumn lives with her single aunt and alcoholic grandfather. When her aunt gets married, and the only family she’s ever known crumbles, Autumn’s compulsive habits lead her to drink. And the consequences of her decisions suggest that there’s more of Kristina in her than she’d like to believe. Summer doesn’t know about Hunter, Autumn, or their two youngest brothers, Donald and David. To her, family is only abuse at the hands of her father’s girlfriends and a slew of foster parents. Doubt and loneliness overwhelm her, and she, too, teeters on the edge of her mother’s notorious legacy. As each searches for real love and true family, they find themselves pulled toward the one person who links them together—Kristina, Bree, mother, addict. But it is in each other, and in themselves, that they find the trust, the courage, the hope to break the cycle. Told in three voices and punctuated by news articles chronicling the family’s story, FALLOUT is the stunning conclusion to the trilogy begun by CRANK and GLASS, and a testament to the harsh reality that addiction is never just one person’s problem.

3.5 Fallout Review
3.5/5 stars After Glass I was really disconnected with Kristina, I almost didn't read Fallout because I just didn't care for our lead character. But I decided to and I was in for a pleasant surprise because Fallout is centered around 3 of Kristina's children. All in all it was much better than Gla...

This review is for the third book in the Crank series. There are spoilers for the first two books in the review, but not for the third one. My review of the second book is here and my review of the first book is here. This book is really different from the first two books in the series, which re...

Fallout by Ellen Hopkins is the third and final instalment of the Crank trilogy. I started the series about 5 years ago, and decided it was about time I read the last book. I was a huge fan of the first ones (Crank and Glass) and I really wasn't disappointed with Fallout.In this last book, the story...

What a great ending to the trilogy!I did not expect that it would take me so damn long to read this novel, but work and school were very stressful and I didn't have time for anything. But taking me so long to read it did not mean that I haven't enjoyed reading this.I loved how the story took place ...

Ellen Hopkins never fails to impress and write a book you can't put down. This for me, was one of the hardest to read. Not because the language was hard or anything, simply because we have followed Kristina for what feels like for SO. LONG. We watched her fall into the grasp of the Monster and find ...
