In 2004, Carson City author Ellen Hopkins published the freestyle verse novel, “Crank,” based on the real-life experiences of her daughter, Cristal, and her addiction to methamphetamine that began at the age of 17 during a two- week summer trip to her father’s house. Hopkins said addiction is something that touches the life of everyone and not solely the person struggling with it.At first, the caressesare sweet, exhilarating.The touch of the monster makes things better, easier. It isn’t until one is wrapped in the arms of the beast that light is blocked out. Surviving its suffocating embrace cannot be done alone.The monster’s name is well-known to many: addiction.Kristina Snow is the perfect daughter: gifted high school junior, quiet, never any trouble. Then, while on a trip to visit her father in New Mexico, Kristina meets the monster: Crank. And what begins as an wild, ecstatic ride, turns into a struggle through hell for her mind, her soul-her life.
