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.
