Series: Part 1 of Tricksters
“The trickster’s function is to break taboos, create mischief, stir things up. In the end, the trickster gives people what they really want: some sort of freedom.”
Steve and Bucky are adopted by two trickster spirits. This is the tale of fun, angst, recovery, travel, and love that results when their paths cross on the campus of University of California Santa Cruz.
