White Lines was fast paced-appropriate, since the main charater is a coke addict. I think teenagers will enjoy the gritty realism. My only complaint: the ending. This girl was a hot mess the entire book- a derailed train who suddenly pulled it all together in the last 10 pages. I liked the character, and while part of me is glad to see her 'safe' at the end, another part of me screams, she should have died.
I think MG students will enjoy this novel. The protagonist, a boy who is living with his aunt after the death of his parents,is both mischeveous and courageous. The plot is engaging. Voice is solid and humorous. Rich word choice-I especially loved the creative names! A quick, easy, fun read.
I don't consider myself to be a horror fan-but I really enjoyed this book. The author did a fantastic job creating a cast of characters that were believable and I loved the protagonist/narrator Will Henry. The plot was fast paced and had just enough twists & turns to keep me interested. Enjoyed it so much I'm off to read book two in the series!
