Well, except for the idea someone might notice how my eyes often fell toward the rhythm of his exit. I never once lusted for Janet like that. I tried to let her down easy. But breaking up is never an easy thing. Not Easy for Janet Who never saw it coming. But you told me you love me. I do love you, I said. You know my mom is sick. And it worked, to a point, anyway. At least it gave Janet something to hold on to. I know, Seth. The denial in my eyes spoke clearly. She tried another tactic, sliding her arms around my neck, seeking to comfort me.
Swollen with desire. Lips still locked to mine, she murmured, What if I give you this. To be honest, I thought about doing it. What if it cured my confusion after all? In the heat of the moment, I even got hard, especially when Janet touched me, dropped onto her knees, lowered my zipper, started to do what I never suspected she knew how to do. The haze in my brain cleared instantly, and I pushed her away. What are you, anyway? Not really expecting a response, she pivoted sharply, went in search of moral support.
So she never heard me say, way under my breath, "Maybe I am gay. All fact here is rooted in gossip, and gossip can prove deadly. Caught up to her after Mass Sunday morning, and when he was done, that church parking lot looked like a street in Baghdad.
After, Billy felt kind of bad. Best way I could think of was through the be anyone you choose to be possibilities of online dating. Granted, One Possibility Was hooking up with a creep— a pervert, looking to spread some incurable disease to some poor, horny idiot. I met more than one pervert, but I never let them do me. No homosexual yokel, anxious enough to get laid to let any guy who swung the correct direction into my jeans.
I wanted my first real sex to be with the right guy. Someone experienced enough to teach me, but not humiliate me. Someone good-looking. A good talker, yes, but a good listener, too. Someone maybe even hoping to fall in love. Incredibly Unimaginably, Loren turned out to be all those things, and I found him in Louisville!
He opened my eyes to a wider world, introduced me to the avant-garde—performance art, nude theater, alternative lit. After years of fried chicken and Pabst Blue Ribbon, such adjustments could only be born of love.
Truthfully, love was unexpected. But that first day, when Loren opened his door, I took one look and fell flat on my face. Figuratively, of course. I barely stumbled as I crossed the threshold— into his apartment, and into the certainty of who I am. Answer it, and I will stumble back into her shadow. Shut my mouth, never ask again. Face it down.
And all you have to do is tell me why you love her more. I love my sister. Just not as much as my mother loves her. I can sing a tolerable alto. And speaking of dreams, mine are. Start your free 30 days. Page 1 of 1.
This book was good, but in a way didn't have much life to it. The characters weren't as developed as I'd have liked them too, and maybe that's because it was the story of 5 different teenagers, but regardless, when they cried, I didn't cry; When they laughed, I didn't laugh.
It's not Ellen Hopkins best book, but it had a good message, and at the end, in the author's note, the statistic that she gave about teenage prostitution - that the average age is 12 years old - that was scary, and it is probably one of the most shocking things I have ever read.
I love Ellen Hopkins and her books never fail to create haunting and fantastic pictures. They never ever lack feeling and Tricks is no exception to that. I feel like shes giving these poor children who have to go through such things a real voice. Very powerful. I cried several times throughout this book. There can never be enough good things to be said about this book, but the only thing you really need to know about it is that no matter how old you are you HAVE to read this book.
The story of three different circumstances in which boys and girls turn to prostitution. Very upsetting. This book was really good!
In the beginning, I couldn't quite figure out who's who. I mean the book is divided into different people. Eden, Seth, Whitney, Ginger and Cody. But then after I while, I kind of got use to it. This book is really interesting. Eden lives in a religous family, but falls in love with a boy, Andrew, that she's not suppose to. Seth is gay. He loves Loren, but he can't tell his dad, because he believes that gay people are evil.
Whitney loves Lucas. She lives in a house where her mom loves her sister way more than her, and her dad is never home.
Ginger lives in a house with 6 siblings, and a hooker for a mom. The only person she cares about is her grams. And finally, Cody loves Ronnie. He has a good life, with a loving mom, good step-dad and a brother.
Soon their lives with intertwine a bit, and the book gets really amazing! This book was quite explicit. A lot more so than I thought it was going to be.
But the stories behind it triumphs the explicit. It is about 5 people who find the most innocent type of love and end up in the worst kind of 'love'.
It shows how each of these five people's lives intertwine by fate and love. This book is confusing at the beginning. All of them starting off with their own individual problems. The cool thing about this book is that their problems all become related and a few of the characters help each other out. The strongest character by far means would be Ginger who ended up helping most of the characters in the book while she dealt with her own rejection.
The book is really moving when you can see the love that builds up through these children as they discover who they really are. Ellen Hopkins does a great job of getting the story across. I don't really suggest that most teenagers read this, even though Hopkins wants the theme to get across to teenagers, but the book is a little intense. A little to intense for 13 or 14 even 15 year olds to read. It seems as if the books should be for adults.
It was good don't get me wrong, but very heart tearing and overwhelming. This was honestly my least favorite of all Ellen Hopkins' books, but it was still captivating. Hopkins has a way with words that draw in the reader, and make them feel what the narrator is feeling. The characters' experiences come alive, and you can sense the emotions that are playing through each and every one of them. It shows a raw and in-your-face reality of what some adolescents actually go through in real life.
I strongly recommend that everyone read at least one of Hopkins' books. This is another great book from Ms. Hopkins that left me speechless. Not only did it give me a whole new insight, but it gave something new to think about. I never thought that sex trafficking as a big deal. After reading this book, I now realize that this is not talk about enough. If you are a mature reader, then you can read this.
While this book is not meant to be pretty, Ms. Hopkins really gets into the gist of things, not hiding anything.
I love that Ms. Hopkins wrote this book fully, not holding anything back. She stories that she tells from different point of views will make you cringe as well as fight for these people. I also liked how Ms. Hopkins gave a variety of characters, so the reader sees everything. After reading this book, I just wanted to cry. My heart ached so much! All of the different stories in this book happened every day in America right under our noses. It makes me angry and sad that not everyone can get the help that they need.
You feel the characters hurt, anger, rage, at what is happening to them. You as the reader feel helpless and powerless to stop it. You must read this book in order to know what I am talking about. I living in one of the top 5 cities of the sex industry was very pleased with this book. The sex industry is out there and this book will help be more aware of whats around you. Some people are forced, some look at it as a last option, and others just find their way into it. It also shows you the consequences of your actions.
This book is severely realistic to the point were it shook me to the core. Things that happened in this book happens in really life more than we realize. This is a huge problem and i think that everyone should read this book to know a little bit more about the industry. I was skeptical of this book because of the fact that it was written in free verse. But it makes no difference. Each of them in their own messed up situation Ginger is probably gonna run away with Alex, even though she has five brothers and sisters who she has to take care of, being the oldest with a hooker mom who doesn't give a crap.
And he should quit gambling. And Whitney was just dumped and my makes the worst mistake of her life hooking up with a guy that was stalking her. And then getting addicted to heroin. Yeah, Whitney and Cody are my least favorite characters Seth and Ginger I guess. But even though she's a minor character, Alex is awesome XDGreat, great, great book.
I read this via audio bookI was quite taken with this book - it was quite compelling, raw and intense. The book covers 5 teenagers from different places, with different issues family, background, etc who all end up prostituting themselves.
I understand that the book was written in verse but there was a very 'novel' feel to the audio book - each voice was different for each character which was nice and added to each individual stories.
Although some of the voices were less effective than others, I wasn't bothered by any of them too much. Each character comes to life at Hopkins' hands - they live, breath and elicit emotion from the reader as we follow their journey into prostitution. The material and circumstances of the book are harrowing, difficult to read and extremely thought provoking.
I've continued to think about these characters and their stories after finishing the book which is always a great sign of a compelling read. This is an excellent YA book that I think all older teens 15 and older, in my opinion should have the opportunity to read. It really gets to the heart of how just one choice seemingly insignificant at the time can result in a spiraling of events that can change a life forever. Ellen Hopkins writes a heartbreaking story of how five young people hear 'I love you' for all the wrong reasons.
In this book, readers are told how reaching rock bottom is much easier than one may have thought. I defintley recommend this book to everyone, most defintley a favorite Ellen Hopkins book of mine, for sure.
Have you ever had to make a decision, that would change your life and the lives of your loved ones? Have you ever been in a situation, where you feel everything and everyone is against you? Well, this is what these five teenagers are facing. Ellen Hopkins' novel, Tricks, explores the lives of five troubled teenagers in such a powerful way, it will leave you shocked for many days to come. Eden Streit is a girl, who is forced to live the way her parents want her to live. Her parents are against dating and love, and when they find out their daughter was with a guy named Andrew.
She is forced to live at Tears of Zion a place for corrupted teenagers. Seth Parnell is gay and he struggles everyday to keep that a secret from his father. When the truth is out, Seth's father can not except it and forces him to live on his own. Now Seth has to make a decision that will change his life forever. Whitney Lang is a popular girl. She is used to having things she wants, but not the attention she desires.
When she hooks up with a popular guy, she is very happy, but when the relationship ends, she is left with anger. That anger drives her in a rebellious direction, that she will soon regret.
Ginger Cordell's life has always been filled with drugs. Her mother has six kids, with five different fathers. The only person she truly cares for is her grand-mother, but when things get really hard, Ginger can't take it anymore. She decides on running away with her friend. Cody Bennet's life was a good one, until his step-father died and everything changed. Now he has to take care of his brother Cory and his mother.
Money was a big problem and the only option Cody could see was gambling. Five teenagers from different parts of the country. Their moving stories remain seperate at first, but then interweave to a tell a larger, powerful story. A story about making choices, taking leaps of faith, falling down, and growing up.
Will they find the little light that is left in their souls? Or will they surrender to the darkness, that is the devil. Ellen Hopkins has put light in some very challenging subjects. There are lots of twists and turns throughout the book, that leave you wanting more. This is a book for those who enjoy their poetry, but it is very revealing on many topics, that may not be so suitable for younger readers.
Overall, Tricks is a great read. Once again I actually love how some of these end on an uncertain lingering note. It's much better than wrapping things up with a happily ever after for everyone because that's just how reality works. Not everyone can have a happy ending, not everyone finds a way out. Yes it's sad to see that happens, but it just makes us feel more grateful for what we have.
We're only left hoping for the best for these characters and people out there in the real world going through the same struggles.
Tricks is a story of 5 teenagers, Eden, Cody, Seth, Ginger, and Whitney, whose lives have caused them to start working some sort of prostitution setting. Each individual has their own story to tell, and sometimes their paths cross which I thought was really interesting.
Something I noticed was a common spelling mistake throughout the book. When they would spell shirt, it would come out shift.
