Margaret Mahy knows that, and this coming-of-age tale is all about human sexuality without ever being crass. Mahy also pulls off a Megan Whalen Turner worthy twist when it comes to the family saga side of things. THE TRICKSTERS is sometimes confusing, as Mahy rarely explains exactly what's going on. You have to put it together yourself. Often, you have to make your own decision about what happened.
