Flirtin' With the Monster: Your Favorite Authors on Ellen Hopkins' Crank and Glass
Flirtin' with the Monster
Ellen Hopkins, Niki Burnham
Flirtin' with the Monster pulls back the curtain on Ellen Hopkins' smart and daring books Crank and Glass and explores their appeal and originality through a compilation of serious yet fascinating essays. In addition to fan essays, Flirtin' with the Monster takes a deeper look at the issues behind Hopkins' bestselling novels by allowing the real teenage girl who inspired the meth-addicted main character to contribute an essay. Ellen Hopkins doesn't shy away from serious yet crucial teen topics, and whether it's homosexuality or suicide, she paints a very real picture of the issue. With an introduction by Ellen herself, Flirtin' with the Monster is the definite voice on what makes Crank and Glass page-turners for teens everywhere. Flirtin' with the Monster has essays written by Susan Hart Lindquist, Lynda Sandoval, Niki Burnham, Terri Clark, Gail Giles, Cinda Chima, Megan Kelley Hall, Micol Ostow, Mary Bryan and John Tatro
