Tricks by Ellen Hopkins( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
"Five teenagers from different parts of the country. Three girls. Two guys. Four straight. One gay. Some rich. Some poor. Some from great families. Some with no one at all. All living their lives as best they can, but all searching ... for freedom, safety, community, family, love. What they don't expect, though, is all that can happen when those powerful little words 'I love you' are said for all the wrong reasons. Five moving stories remain separate at first, then interweave to tell a larger, powerful story-- a story about making choices, taking leaps of faith, falling down, and growing up. A story about kids figuring out what sex and love are all about, at all costs, while asking themselves, 'Can I ever feel okay about myself?'"--Publisher's web site

When sixteen-year-old Abigail's mother dies in Scotland--leaving a faded photo, a weirdly cryptic letter, and a one-way ticket to America--she feels nothing. Why should she? Her mother abandoned her as a baby to grow up on an antinuclear commune and then in ugly foster homes. But the letter is a surprise in more ways than one: her father is living in California. What's more, she has an eighteen-year-old sister, Becky. And the two are expecting Abigail to move in with them. While struggling to overcome her natural suspicions of a note from beyond the grave--not to mention anything positive--Abigail tries to fit in with her strange, new American family: a distant father with a closed past, a too-perfect stepmother, and most puzzling of all, her long-lost sister. Becky sweeps Abigail into a shadowy underground movement involving clandestine street art, jailbreaks, and a bizarre double life. Soon Abigail uncovers something unimaginable: a plot with vast implications--one that is aimed not only at controlling her sister, but the behavior of rebellious teens across the globe
