Product Description


"The final installment of the trilogy that began with CRANK and GLASS examines the impact of Kristina's methamphetamine addiction on three of her children, now teens. Though not raised by their mother, they are still 'dealing with the fallout of choices' she made, beginning in her own teenage years, as the narratives shifts among them. Hunter is quick to anger and experiments with substances, too; Autumn suffers from OCD and panic attacks because 'things happened' when she was little; and Summer bounces around to different foster homes before running away with her boyfriend. Fans will recognize the author's trademark style: this is a gritty, gripping collection of free verse and concrete poems. Hopkins neatly creates news articles attributed to Associated Press, Variety, and other sources, clueing reading in to the fates of other characters from the first two books. In the end, readers will be drawn into the lives of each of these struggling teens as they deal with complicated home lives, first loves, and a mostly absent mother who 'wants to love them' but is too damaged to do so." --Publishers Weekly

"Hopkins’ pithy poetry is the perfect vehicle to deliver the festering emotional beating that drug addiction inflicts on families. . . . Fallout is impossible to put down." - VOYA

Fallout - an unexpected or incidental effect, outcome, or product.

FALLOUT is exactly that definition....the effects of Kristina Snow's addiction with crank. The fallout that the title is referring to is the effects on her kids. FALLOUT tells the story of three of Kristina's children: Hunter (the oldest), and two daughters, Autumn and Summer.

Each of these children live different lives with different families. Hunter, the most fortunate of Kristina's children, lives with his grandparents in a normal life. Hunter constantly battles his own demons, though. He has a decent job with a local radio station and a relationship with a good girl, Nikki. But Hunter is constantly messing up that relationship and trying to find ways to prove to Nikki that he truly loves her.

Autumn is the daughter of the infamous Trey. She lives with her Aunt Cora and her grandfather. Her situation isn't that bad, either. But her aunt is getting married and that changes everything. It's at her aunt's wedding that Trey appears and shakes things up.

And finally we meet Summer. Summer lives in a broken-down trailer these days with her alcoholic father and his current flame. Summer had a decent boyfriend, but ruins it all when she falls for his best friend, bad news Kyle.

During the course of the next few months, the children of Kristina are on a spiral to a surprise ending one Christmas. They will all come together in an unplanned way.

FALLOUT is yet another amazing novel by Ms. Hopkins. It is an emotional roller coaster that leaves the reader saddened, and then triumphant, for the children affected by a parent's addiction.

This was a good book, like all of Hopkin's books it was addicting, but it wasn't what I expected. Normally her books go deeper into each character. Maybe it was because these characters didn't have as bad of problems as characters in her previous novels, but I just didn't feel as attached to Hunter or Autumn as I have with characters in her previous books. Summer's story was definitely my favorite, I felt the most attached to her and the most interested in her story. None of them were particularly messed up, they had problems and were emotionally scarred because of where their lives have gone due to Kristina, but they didn't create their own problems as much as other characters in previous books. They had problems due to the circumstances they grew up in. Summer was a bit of an exception to this which I think is why I liked her more. I guess I wanted a more intense novel. It was still an excellent book, I just didn't feel like as much happened as you usually get from Hopkins.

Like all of Hopkins' previous book, Fallout is amazingly written and exciting. It is exceptionally hard to put it down, and I am constantly tempted to devour the rest of it in one sitting.. The stories of Kristina's three offspring are just so real, enticing and disturbing all at once. This book is like a trip into three people lives that have been screwed up because of their mother, and it's as if they are destined to fail and give in to addiction. I am halfway done the book and my only wish is to have more time to dedicate to it!! I feel that the book is a big, huge chunk of advice yet it is not the typical informative, shove-down-your-throat book on how to avoid drugs and what are their effects.
DEFINITELY a must-read for young teenagers to .. well, any age!
