Book Overview

Is there any greater thrill than staring down your opponent across the poker table, waiting for the card that will make or break your hand? Acclaimed YA novelist Pete Hautman would know--he's been a poker fanatic for thirty years. And with poker now an international TV phenomenon, the time seems right for an anthology about this most exciting game. From a contest that pits a hapless teen against his girlfriend's redneck family, to a midnight game...

Full house - Full of great stories!

I was lucky enough to get the ARC of this book and wanted to come and review it for others who are considering purchasing it. With story contributions by many of today's prominent YA authors, Pete Hautman puts them together in this collection of stories which have poker as the central theme. We have "Poker for the Complete Idiot" by KL Going which features a hot-shot kid who thinks that because his competitors live in a trailer park, they don't know the game. Watch for the fun twist in this one. "Dealing With the Devil" is about a man who tells the story of the night he -almost- ended up in a game of cards that could last an eternity. Then there is "The Scholarship Game" by Pete Hautman himself. A tale full of twists and turns that reads as if you were on a waterslide winding down and around. I won't give away any plot elements, you must read it for yourself. Plus there is the artwork and layout of the book, which is delightful. Each page looks like a giant card with page numbers and suits on both the top and bottom of each page which completes the immersion into the tales. Pick this one up, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
