Waiting on Wednesday (8/15/12)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. It's just a quick look at the books we're all looking forward to. 

This week I am looking forward to White Lines by Jennifer Banash.  It will be available in April of 2013, and it sounds really good. 






White Lines
by Jennifer Banash
Expected Publication Date:  April 4, 2013
Publisher:  Putnam Juvenile

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.
Both poignant and raw, White Lines is a gripping tale and the reader won't want to look away.
