Add to Wish List
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 twenty years.
nineteen, 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.

This sounds very intriguing and I have been wanting to read "Crank" and
"Glass" for quiet sometime now but now this whole series is definitely
moving up on my TBR list!!!
