    Great read

    Another great read from Hopkins. Full of haunting imagery and wonderful poetic rhythms. Easy to read as the book flowed between stories and povs

    Tricks is a story of love - love that is misguided, love that is misinterpreted, love that goes wrong. In her signature beautiful poetic writing style, Ellen Hopkins takes the reader on a journey that interweaves the lives of five teenagers who are desperate to be loved and are trying to figure out what saying “I love you” really means. Let me introduce you to our cast of characters: Eden, the daughter of a born-again minister in Idaho, who falls for an older boy and has to deal with the consequences of misbehaving in an ultra-religious family. Seth, a gay teen in Indiana, who is struggling with the loss of his mother and the fear of showing his real self to his homophobic father. Whitney, a girl who has always felt that her mother loved her sister more, and is desperate to be loved in the way she feels she deserves. Ginger, the oldest daughter of a prostitute, who is dealing with raising her five siblings and what happens when her mother’s life leeches into her own. Cody, a teen living in a happy, supportive family in Las Vegas - until everything starts to fall apart. Some of these teens are living in awful situations, some are very well off, but all of them are struggling with the idea of love - familial love, romantic love, even love of themselves. Throughout Tricks, the reader follows these five teens as they make different decisions in the name of love, and land themselves on a path they never imagined could happen to them. Ellen Hopkins tells their stories beautifully, and interweaves the stories of these teens who just need someone to care.
