A coming of age story with a difference.
Trick is fifteen and growing up in a dead-end Devon town. Because of how he looks, Trick stands out, attracting unwanted attention.
More than usually subject to peer pressure, he wins approval from his tough gang of friends by spotting an opportunity for a robbery at a local supermarket. But he never thought they’d go through with it. When they do Trick finds he can’t back out and has to take part in the crime.
Even though they escape with more money than they’d anticipated, it is a botched job and cataclysmic events unfold. Will Trick’s wit and quick thinking find a way out for him and his friends, or are they all doomed?
While all of this is unfolding, Kelly Jenkins, the girl Trick has been in love with since he was seven years old, is planning her escape from Devon. If he doesn’t tell her how he feels now he risks losing her forever…
A gritty, fast-paced story full of suspense and intrigue, Trick is ultimately about friendship, growing up and what it’s like to fall in love for the very first time.
