Todd Lerner's never been much of a student, but he's got plenty of street smarts and he's a mean poker player. Todd's always had a thing for Claire, the most beautiful girl in grade eleven -- but Claire likes nice things. If Todd wants to date her, he'll need cash and plenty of it. Soon, a weekly poker game turns into a costly and dangerous obsession, and Todd's luck begins to change. Inspired by true events, All In journeys into the high-stakes worlds of gambling, addiction, and fraud.

Awards

Short-listed - Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile Crime Book - 2007

Winner - Best Books for Kids & Teens - Canadian Children's Book Centre - 2008

"Polak's attempt at tackling a topic which has received limited attention in YA novels is commendable. Her work prompts adults working with teens to realize that gambling addiction is not a social problem with which only adults and seniors wrestle."

- Carol-Ann Hoyte Canadian Bookseller
