I don’t want to be this person anymore, but I’ve been running for so long, I don’t know how to stop, how to stand still, how to begin again.

Seventeen-year-old Cat is club kid royalty, with the power to decide who gets past the velvet rope at some of the hottest clubs in the city. She lives for the night with its high-inducing energy, pulsing music and those seductive white lines that can ease all pain. Her days are something else entirely. Having spent years enduring her mother’s emotional and physical abuse, and abandoned by her father, Cat is terrified and alone. But when someone comes along who makes her want to truly live, she’ll need to summon the courage to confront her demons.

Both poignant and raw, White Lines is a gripping, coming-of-age tale for readers of Willow.

About the Author:

Jennifer Banash lives and writes in Los Angeles.

Review:

"Daily transformations from punk to avant-garde highlight Cat's complex personality and style; her New York world is so tangible from Banash's text...[her] unhealthy relationship with her mother is highlighted in startling flashbacks of control and cruelty. A bevy of bizarrely realistic characters round out the story; Sara, Alexa, Julian and more all strive for lives that balance their own wishes with those of their parents."--VOYA — VOYA

"Subtle, sad and, eventually hopeful."--Kirkus — Kirkus Reviews

 "The gritty and emotionally charged story pulses like the rapid heartbeat of a girl in distress."--BooklistBooklist

"A wild and startling ride."--Rachel Cohn, co-author of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Dash and Lily's Book of DaresRachel Cohn

"White Lines is sometimes heartbreaking, occasionally hilarious, and always impossible to set aside."--Nick Burd, author of The Vast Field of OrdinaryNick Burd

"Banash captures the pulsing atmospherics of the '80s club scene in minute and perfect detail, juxtaposing her descriptions of the outlandish fashions and stylized personalities against evocative, lyrical metaphors of Cat's brittle inner life. The effect is emotionally lashing; readers can't miss the note of desperation, sadness, and insecurity that threads through and in fact drives the relentless party scene for all the players, or that Cat's only moments of happiness come when she's high. The steadying presences of Sara and a new boy bring Cat back from the edge to end her story with a note of hope; give this to fans of Francesca Lia Block to see what Weetzie might have looked like on the East Coast."--BCCB
