Jason Doering commented on Shivani's blog post Addiction; it changes people for the worse
"Shivani, this is a great post detailing the terrible affects drugs can have on a person, physically and mentally. I hope those who read Crank are deterred from the painful life Kristina endures. Crank sounds like a really good book though, nice job!"
