CRANK by Ellen Hopkins Title: Crank Author: Ellen Hopkins Publication Date: Feb 2008 When I Read It: Jan 2009 Synopsis: Kristina Georgia Snow is the perfect daughter: a gifted student, quiet, never any trouble. But on a trip to visit her absentee father, Kristina disappears and Bree takes her place. Bree is a total opposite to Kristina - she's fearless.
