Fallout by Ellen Hopkins

*Finished this book a few days ago..just now getting around to reviewing it*
What it's about:  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.

My Thoughts: This book was the weakest in the series, imo. Fallout follows the story with Kristina's 3 children and how each of them are infected by her addiction. While this book is still really good, I am disappointed that the POV of Kristina's has stopped. Not to mention that the POVs via the kids were kind of weak. It was easy to tell that they were all written by one person. But it's still worth reading and I really enjoyed it..the ending is also kind of weak though. I kind of hope that this is the last book in the series..otherwise it will start to be over done. I wish that Hopkins would have written a third book with her POV instead. Anyway enough rambling, good book but could have been better.
