It has been ten years since Ellen Hopkins’ first bestselling book, CRANK, was released. Since then, Hopkins has given YA some of its most resonating and powerful stories. Her latest book is RUMBLE, another thought-provoking and emotional story that follows a boy who lost his faith. She tackles tough and controversial topics with respect and senstivity. I always feel like I’ve learned something new about myself when I finish one of her books.
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of CRANK and the upcoming RUMBLE, we have an amazing prize pack to give away to one lucky young folk! First, read a little about Rumble, Ellen Hopkins and her novels.
“There is no God, no benevolent ruler of the earth, no omnipotent grand poobah of countless universes. Because if there was…my little brother would still be fishing or playing basketball instead of fertilizing cemetery vegetation.”
Matthew Turner doesn’t have faith in anything.
Not in family—his is a shambles after his younger brother was bullied into suicide. Not in so-called friends who turn their backs when things get tough. Not in some all-powerful creator who lets too much bad stuff happen. And certainly not in some “It Gets Better” psychobabble.
No matter what his girlfriend Hayden says about faith and forgiveness, there’s no way Matt’s letting go of blame. He’s decided to “live large and go out with a huge bang,” and whatever happens happens. But when a horrific event plunges Matt into a dark, silent place, he hears a rumble . . . a rumble that wakes him up, calling everything he’s ever disbelieved into question.
