This was pretty good. Unlike the first two books, this one follows the 3 eldest children of Kristina's. Hunter, Autumn, and Summer. I like how it really helped to see how her choices affect those around her and not just through her eyes. ( )

(This review can also be found on my blog at The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty Something Year Old Girl).

Fallout by Ellen Hopkins is the final book in the Crank trilogy. I so wanted and expected this book to be just as great as the first two. However, this wasn't the case. It was alright, but no where near as good as Crank and Glass. Perhaps it was just because I wanted more Kristina, and she wasn't mentioned too much in this book.

Fallout follows the lives of three of Kristina's children. Hunter is the oldest at 19. He is extremely angry at his mother and can't understand why his mother abandoned him. Next is Autumn who lives with her aunt and grandfather. When the stability of her home life falls out beneath her, Autumn turns to drinking and becomes a bit of a wild child. Summer doesn't even know she has any biological siblings. She's been living in and out of foster homes her whole life for the most part. When she meets the boy who seems to love her, things start to go wrong. However, each one of them wants Kristina to acknowledge them.

The title of this book makes sense as all of Kristina's children have fallen out with her. I think it does a great job of giving you a hint about what this book will be about.

The cover of this book doesn't really do it for me. I like how the author stuck with the whole druggy looking title. However, I just didn't care for the ugly yellow background and how plain the cover looked. Perhaps that's just a personal thing as all the covers have been plain looking, but as this was told from the point of view from Kristina's children, I thought this cover would just have a different look.

The world building in Fallout is alright, but it's easy to forget which world you're in. Maybe that's just my bad memory, but I always had to remind myself which setting belonged to what character.

The pacing in this book is slower than the first two books, and is just a bit slow overall. It took me a longer time than usual to read this book because most of the time, I just had trouble getting into it. I just found myself not caring really when it came to everything in Fallout.

There's not much dialogue going on between the characters as with the first two books in the series. I thought the internal dialogue which each character was really good, and I felt like the dialogue between each individual character was appropriate for each of their age. There are a few swear words in this book so be warned if that's not your cup of tea.

I found myself not caring about the characters most of the time. I don't know if this was because I wanted more Kristina or because they weren't as well developed as Kristina. I got Autumn and Summer confused a lot of the time whilst reading since they almost seem to have the same personality. The only way I was able to tell them apart (besides it having their name printed at the top of the page when it was time for their point of view) was because of the setting, and even then it was sometimes difficult. With that said, I started off enjoying reading about Hunter as he seemed to just be a more well defined, more interesting character. About halfway through the book, I even stopped caring about him because he just became a little bit boring.

I enjoyed that Fallout was written in verse like the first two books in the series. Hopkins does a fantastic job putting words in verse and putting it into a story. I just wish this book could've been as good as the first two. Instead Fallout falls a little bit flat with the characters and the plot both leaving me feeling uncaring. Don't get me wrong, it's still an okay book, but I just think that this book didn't need to be written as not much is going on.

I'd recommend this book to those aged 15 who are interested in learning about Kristina's children since you won't be hearing much about Kristina in this book. ( )

What a disappointment! Come on, Ellen Hopkins! You can do better than this. Crank and Glass were both compelling and heartbreaking (plus you couldn't put them down!), while Fallout was... what? Nothing but one huge disappointment. I contemplated not finishing it.

I kept getting the two girl characters mixed up, and frankly all three voices sounded the exact same. Like she didn't even try to make separate characters. It seemed like Hopkins was trying to make Kristina the focus of this book, but it the book didn't work out that way.

Anyway. Hopkins should have left this book out and left Crank and Glass alone.

I really enjoyed this book's take on Drugs. Fantastic. ( )

This story is for upper middle school to high school students. Following the Crank series, this is another well-written book by Hopkins. It will be enticing for students who have faced these struggles in their own lives as well to struggling readers. Hopkin's style of switching character perspective gives the book action and depth while her poetry style makes struggling readers more likely to pick this book up.
