Just finally read Crank by Ellen Hopkins. I've heard female YA readers rave about it, and couldn't get into the first few pages though I tried a couple times. This time I decided to keep reading until I fell in, and fall I did. It's good. Very good. Sometimes I'm amazed that she gets by with the abstractions she uses in places, but I think it's so solidly imagistic the rest of the time, that we all forgive her. It's well, well, worth the read.
