THE best book you will ever read in your life, by Ellen Hopkins. Should be read by anyone 14 and up. This book is about five different kids' journeys and how they all end up in Vegas trying to survive by performing "tricks" that are taking their selves away from them and replacing them with dirty, filthy prostitutes that they don't want to be.
Altogether an amazing, but horrifyingly real story about 5 young, terrified kids stuck in Sin City with no way to get out.
Girl: I'm looking for a book as addicting as heroin, but actually real so I will finish it knowing things I've never even thought about before.
Me: Girl, you are talking about Tricks.
