"CRANK" DE ELLEN HOPKINS (2004)

Me llamó la atención su portada y su misterioso argumento:

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

Kristina, Bree... Bree, Kristina...
2 personalidades, una sola persona... acaso no nos pasa a todos? Aunque está claro que el monstruo "ayuda" en ciertas cosas...

Una de las joyas que me traje de mi último viaje por tierras norteamericanas... Para el resto tocará pedido a Amazon...

Uno de mis pasajes favoritos:


"Have you ever
had so much to say
that your mouth closed up tight,
struggling to harness the nuclear force
coalescing within your words?

Have you ever
had so many thoughts
churning inside that you didn't
dare let them escape,
in case they blew you open wide?

Have you ever
been so angry that you
couldn't look in the mirror
for fear of finding the face of evil
glaring back at you?"
