Waiting On Wednesday: Fallout

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Fallout by Ellen Hopkins

* Published by: Margaret K. McElderry (US)
* Format: Hardcover (US)
* Release Date:
September 14th, 2010 (US)
* On Amazon: here

I can't find a synopsis for Fallout anywhere, so I don't know too much about it. It's the sequel to the amazing Crank and Glass, and is told by Kristina's children. Ellen Hopkins talks more about it on her site, on the Fallout book page.

I'm so excited for this book. After reading the other two last week, I've discovered a new love for verse novels and Ellen Hopkins. I also love the cover.. I think it's my favourite of the series. It's so striking.


Edit: Thanks to Lenore for finding the summary on Shelf Awareness!

It moves from the story of Kristina Snow, who became addicted to crystal meth (aka crank, "the monster") in Crank, and whose story continued with Glass, to the next generation. Hunter, Autumn and Summer--three of Kristina Snow's five children--live with different guardians and go by different last names. What they share is an absent mother whose real love for the past 20 years has been crank. The novel shifts among their three narratives and incorporates news items that also shed light on their family history--one riddled with the ravages of addiction.

Sounds amazing, eh?

Wow. The cover is scary even though there is hardly anything on it.

I totally agree with this!! I've actually made my WoW this week for that title too. I'm a huuge fan of Hopkins and the Crank series.

I'm so excited for this one. I read both Crank and Glass last month and really liked them. I hadn't seen the cover for Fallout yet, it looks really creepy I think.
