Tricks, by Ellen Hopkins [teen fiction]

Reviewed by Randolph, 10th grader

Tricks was one of the best books I’ve ever read. I’d recommend it to a friend. It’s about four teenagers who have secrets that they don’t want anyone to know. All of them end up hurt by relationships, family issues, or get taken away from loved ones. Parts are sad, funny, or completely inappropriate. I must say that I can’t relate to any of the characters because many of them live horribly and can’t make the right choices. There’s a whole series and I’m planning on reading all the books.

Hard Hit, by Ann Warren Turner [Teen Fiction]

Mark is the star of his baseball team. He is all-around fantastic until his dad is diagnosed with cancer. I like this book for the suspense.
