Waiting on Wednesday (26)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases
upcoming releases that people are very much anticipating.

I just learned about this book--out next week--and it sounds awesome, albeit gritty and dark. However, it's set in New York AND the 80s. Sounds great to me!

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.

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. I have had the egalley of this book forever and just haven't read it. I think it sounds great, I need to get on it!

  4. I've been going back and forth on this one. I just can't decide yay or nay.

    My WOW

  5. I'm very interested in this one-I love how the 1980s has become a historical fiction period when there are people around who actually lived through the 80s (I only spent about 2 weeks in the 80s.)
