Ellen Hopkins is a fantastic writer. She's written quite a few books, including Crank, Glass, Impulse, and Identical.

The books are not a series, rather a collection of different stories from teenager's eyes. They're written in poems. If you look carefully, there's more than one poem on each page. They may be a bit hidden, but once you see them.. wow.

Not light reads, I must warn. Probably high school level. They deal with the things that are problems for some teens now- drugs, suicide, stress to the point of breaking- and there's always a message, always a twist that never failed to shock me.

This is powerful, moving writing.

Sounds impressive, Brie. Any literature that can get through to teens and move them has my vote.
