Wow! Ellen Hopkins has done it again. Fallout was the best way to end this series of 3 books. Another amazing book full of surprises and fun. Hunter, Autumn, and Summer are all so different but have one thing in common, their mother. Kristina Snow having three kids with different fathers and last names turns into a dark ally. All 3 kids so different but so similar find themselves closer than they think. This book was written in the point of view of all three kids. Hunter (First son) , Autumn (first daughter), and Summer (Second daughter). All of their stories so similar to that of their mothers but so different within their own way. I personally feel like this book was the perfect way to sum up everything that has happened over the last 2 books with Kristina and all she has been through. Fallout was basically the outcome of everything. I can safely say that Crank + Glass = Fallout! Ellen Hopkins is such an amazing writer and brings something so unique to all of her books. But with Fallout she really out did herself. Both me and all my friends could not put this book down at all. Once we started reading, this book was the only topic of all of our conversations. This book is a perfect choice for any teen girl out there who is wanting a very breath taking, life controlling read. Romance, Fiction and Adventure are only some of the thongs included in this amazing novel. I really hope that everyone reading this gives this book a shot. Because I can guarantee you will not regret it.

This was a great ending to the series. It gave Kristina's children a voice. It also gave the author a little more of a voice. This book not only shows how meth affected Kristina, but it shows how meth affects other. Without giving it away I loved the end the last thought of the the 3 children.

I really enjoyed this book and how it showed the long-term effects of meth on a person's friends and family. I can't say that I enjoyed all the characters because Kristina makes me so mad, Hunter is a cheating jerk, and Autumn acts way too naive and makes some stupid decisions (I tried to be vague and not give anything away). Summer is probably the only one who didn't irritate me a lot. However, I'd still recommend this book (and this series) because it gives you an inside view of the consequences of meth, and I've learned a lot from this series.

This books takes the point of view of Kristina's children and shows the effects meth had on her family. Though the individual stories are strong, I was not the greatest fan of the ending. It is highly unlikely that everyone would happen to come together, even though this brings a definite ending to the trilogy. Apart from the last few sections- good book.

I was extremely touched by this book. This one in particular showed how drug use and your choices affects everyone around you. Theres nothing sader than the pain, rage and hatred Kristina's children feel towards their mother for chosing drugs over them. It shows how from the first book to this one how much Meth has taken a toll and taken everything from her that she ever was or ever could be. I am a former cocaine addict, 2 and a half years clean, with only 2-3 relapses. I am currently now in school to become a social worker to work with youth ages 12-20 addicts. Kristina reminds me strongly of my ex girlfriend who still is a struggling meth addict. I tried to help her get clean and she was clean for awhile but i seen her a couple days ago and found out shes been using again and is now a week clean. Its a back and forth uphill battle for addicts, and i just want all addicts, those who have gotten clean and those still struggling, that theres someone who cares. I may not know you but I love you. And if you need someone to talk to, if you need help in anyway, just send me an email at the_blackfire_dragon@hotmail.com, and I will help you anyway i can. Because there is light at the end of the tunnel, and there are people who care. I know because ive gone through it myself, and im extending a hand for whoever wants it. I wish you all the best.

The final book in the Crank series in from the POV of Kristin's children. Interesting to see how addiction affects those around you. This is a story that could go on forever, but wraps up satisfyingly in this 3rd and final book. Would definitely recommend this series to others.
