A gritty, atmospheric coming of age tale set in 1980s New York City
Seventeen-year-old Cat is living every teenager’s dream—she has her own apartment on the Lower East Side and at night she’s club kid royalty, guarding the velvet rope at some of the hottest clubs in the city. The night with its crazy, frenetic, high-inducing energy—the pulsing beat of the music, the radiant, joyful people and those seductive white lines that can ease all pain—is when Cat truly lives. But her daytime, when real life occurs, is more nightmare than dream.
Having spent years suffering her mother’s emotional and physical abuse, and abandoned by her father, Cat is terrified and alone—unable to connect to anyone or anything. But when someone comes along who makes her want to truly live, she’ll need to summon the courage to confront her demons and take control of a life already spinning dangerously out of control.
Why I want to review White Lines:
Back in 2008 I had been reviewing for less than a year. The Elite by Jennifer Banash was one of the first ARC's I got for my own blog (not from the company I had been reviewing for). I read the other 2 books in the trilogy and loved all of them. Ever since then I have been hoping she would write another book.
My love of her previous books combined with a very edgy synopsis has me dying to read this one.
