If anyone has ever read any of Ellen Hopkins books Crank Glass Impulse Burned Identical I like books with that kind of plot and stuff. I have two credits left to use and does anyone have any recommendations on god books like hers.

I've yet to read Crank, but I do "know" of the book.

My suggestions would be: Go Ask Alice, Almost Lost, Jay's Journal, and other various "anonymous" diaries by Beatrice Sparks.  Also Cut by Patricia McCormick or Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.

I think you might like Tweak by Nic Sheff. It's a memoir, but deals with meth addiction.

Other suggestions:

Street Pharm by Alison van Diepen

Smack by Melvin Burgess
