Waiting On Wednesday: Week 20

My pick this week is:

Flirtin' With the Monster: Your Favorite Authors on Ellen Hopkins' Crank and Glass Edited by Ellen Hopkins

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, Nicole Burnham, Terri Clark, Gail Giles, Cinda Chima, Megan Kelley Hall, Micol Ostow, Mary Bryan and John Tatro

My thoughts/ Why I Want This:
  • It's includes essays from some great authors!
  • It seems really interesting.
  • Plus, it will probably make the wait for Fallout, the conclusion to the Crank series, seem shorter.

Flirtin' With the Monster: Your Favorite Authors on Ellen Hopkins' Crank and Glass will be released May 5, 2009.


  1. Author essays? Sound so unique. I really like the title of the book.

  2. Since I don't understand the appeal of Hopkins, I will have to read this one.

  3. I read the one she edited about Twilight. I think it's funny she's edited a book that's about her own books lol!

  4. I haven't read the Crank series but this sounds really interesting.
