Reader’s Review: Tricks

tricksI just finished reading Ellen Hopkins’ book Tricks and I must say, it is one of the most intense books I have ever cracked open. Being a long term Ellen Hopkins fan, I’ve read all of her previous books and knew without a doubt that this one would be just as intriguing. Tricks is a story about 5 teenagers who fall into the death grips of prostitution for several different reasons. Hopkins did a superb job in making each character come to life and seem as real as someone sitting right next to you. Tricks is filled with so much emotion and heartache that it is impossible to not sympathize with these seemingly unreal situations and the characters caught in them. A definite page turner, I recommend Tricks to any reader looking for the highest thrill you can find within the pages of a book.
