Publisher's Summary

Hunter, Autumn, and Summer - three of Kristina Snow's five children - live in different homes, with different guardians and different last names. They share only a predisposition for addiction and a host of troubled feelings toward the mother who barely knows them, a mother who has been riding with the monster, crank, for 20 years.

Hunter is 19, angry, getting by in college with a job at a radio station, a girlfriend he loves in the only way he knows how, and the occasional party. He's struggling to understand why his mother left him when he unexpectedly meets his rapist father, and things get even more complicated.

Autumn lives with her single aunt and alcoholic grandfather. When her aunt gets married and the only family she's ever known crumbles, Autumn's compulsive habits lead her to drink. And the consequences of her decisions suggest that there's more of Kristina in her than she'd like to believe.

Summer doesn't know about Hunter, Autumn, or their two youngest brothers, Donald and David. To her, family is only abuse at the hands of her father's girlfriends and a slew of foster parents. Doubt and loneliness overwhelm her, and she, too, teeters on the edge of her mother's notorious legacy. As each searches for real love and true family, they find themselves pulled toward the one person who links them together - Kristina, Bree, mother, addict. But it is in each other, and in themselves, that they find the trust, the courage, the hope to break the cycle.

Told in three voices and punctuated by news articles chronicling the family's story, Fallout is the stunning conclusion to the trilogy begun by Crank and Glass and a testament to the harsh reality that addiction is never just one person's problem.

Wish there were more!

This book was a little different then the first two - as this one was based off Christinas childrens lives. It was cool how there lives intertwined but it wasn't as enjoyable as listening to her life. (Crank & Glass)

Yessssssss!!

I read this book many years ago and loved every second of it! I have been waiting for this book to become available and have even emailed the author about it! I can't wait to enjoy it all over again! I also love Kirby Hayborne (the narrator) and am excited to hear him tell another story. He is amazing!

Listened to this many times

I have listened to this series at least 5 times now. I love them all so much. Someday soon I hope my daughters will enjoy them just as much. They are just a bit too young for them but in the next 2 or 3 years I think it will be time. Meth has become a growing issue in my town and it is my greatest fear that either of my girls will become victim to this horrible drug.

Absolutely Amazing!

This third & final book is fantastic! I love the way that Ellen Hopkins seamlessly brings together all those "missing pieces" one might have had after finishing the first two books. Once again, I am not only listening to this book, I'm seeing it in my minds eye. Definitely a series I will listen too again!
As well as continue to recommend to others.

All three books

I read all three. Crank, Glass and Fallout. To glibly say these books were good would be doing a disservice to the author and those involved in the complete making of this whole story. Whether a reader likes Kristina or not is also irrelevant. I found the books to be real and honest and clear. The power of addiction, the power of love, the power for the need to be loved and the power or lack thereof of self love were expertly portrayed. I would recommend for any teen that is considering Messing with drugs read these books before you take that plunge! I think families dealing with addiction can read these and not feel so alone in the midst of the race for life.
Thank you for sharing your story with your readers.
The narrators were fabulous. Well done from every aspect!

Best Sequel!

This was the best sequel I have read, or listened too! I sure hope she write another book in this series! I would love to hear another chapter in this family's life!
