Tricks is about five teenagers from different walks of life, that for some reason or other are questioning love, and looking for it. Two of them find it with the same sex, the other three find it with the opposite. One boy falls in love with gambling and one girl falls in love with a hard, addictive drug. In the end, they all end up in Vegas, doing things they never thought they would.
As always, Ellen writes a fast-paced novel about the harder things in life. I love how she doesn't sugar coat anything, gives it to us the way it would happen in real life. Definitely another must read!
