Crank by Ellen Hopkins (2004)

Life was good
before I
met
the monster.
After,
life
was great
At least
for a little while.

This is a story about a monster. Not a dragon or a mythological beast, but a very real, very destructive monster–crystal meth–that takes hold of seventeen-year-old Kristina Snow and transforms her into her reckless alter-ego Bree. Based on her own daughter”s addiction to crystal meth, Ellen Hopkins” novel-in-verse is a vivid, transfixing look into teenage drug use. Told in Kristina”s voice, it provides a realistic portrayal of the tortured logic of an addict. (Chapters.ca)
