Come and hear New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins talk about Fallout, the stunning final installment of the trilogy that began with Crank and Glass.

Hunter, Autumn, and Summer—three of Kristina Snow’s five children—live in different homes, with different guardians and different last names. They share only a predisposition for addiction and a host of troubled feelings toward the mother who barely knows them, a mother who has been riding with the monster, crank, for twenty years. As each searches for real love and true family, they find themselves pulled toward the one person who links them together—Kristina, mother, addict. But it is in each other, and in themselves, that they find the trust, the courage, the hope to break the cycle.

Told in three voices and punctuated by news articles throughout, Fallout is a testament to the harsh reality that addiction is never just one person’s problem. This is a raw and emotional book from one of America's most popular YA authors whom mediabistro.com called the "bestselling living poet in the U.S."
