White Lines, for me, was an eye-opener. I really never knew how powerful white rocks, glass pipes and powdery white lines could be. I had a cousin that was using due to his older girlfriend. I thought that he was p*s*y whipped and would do anything for her... including drugs. So when I found out that he was using, I just knew that his life was over. Not meaning that the drug would over take him because I didn't think it could. But after reading White Lines, I see thing's differently. The drug could have taking him from us in more ways than one. I never realize how low he had become. At the age of 20 he became a bum. Eating food from the garbage, stilling everything from jewelry to big things such as cars from his own family. But by the grace of God he turned his life around and have been drug free for 8 years.
White Lines take you to the depth of drug addiction. In this book you will learn how the drug will turn you against your family, your one true love and yourself. You will find out what an addict will do to themselves and other's to get that next fix. The way an addict act while on that high and how it can harm an unborn child.
It will also give you insight on how it affects not only the addicted but the ones that love them. How easy it is to fall back in to the past life of an addict and how hard it is to recover. This drug will seem to take the pain, the heartache, hopelessness, guilt and the shame away. It will make one feel as if life is so much better with this drug than without it. But what it (the drug) wont show you are the affects that it has on ones life (from the addicts point of view).
This drug....will have the ones that looked up to you, the ones that respected you and loved to be around you look at you with disgust, pity, hatred in their eyes or all thee above. You lose not only the respect that you once had but you also lose the trust the was put in you...and some times the love that was given unselfishly. It's hard getting all of that back. Your friends, family, coworkers, associate's and enemies will remember for the most part is the fact that you were once an addict. For some, they will be quick to forgive you. For others; that forgiveness will come bit by bit. But for other's, you may never ever be forgiven. An recovered addict will always be a cokehead/crackhead to them. They will remind you every chance they get of what you used to be. And some only do so just to make you weak. They want you to remember, they want you to relapse.
This book is the first book of this length that I've read without an errors and if there were errors in the book than it wasn't noticeable. It also repeats itself a lot; one page the situation is explained to the fullest, within the next two pages or so that same situation is told again. White Lines is told in third person; something that I enjoyed. But the repetition was a little too much. I got tired of reading about the same thing over and over again. But the book was good though
The way that Born reacted to Jada's addiction was horrible. It was almost as if he didn't love her by the way he did her. I respected Dorian. Yes, he messed up. But his love for Sunny was much more powerful than the pain that she exposed him to. What I didn't get was; she said before that the reasons for her use was to block out the truth about him and Raquel. Why not tell him that?
All in all the book is great. I can't wait for 'White Lines II: Sunny'. I'm almost mad at the fact that it's only 304 long; that's 193 short from part one. I know most said the book was too long but i loved the length of the book I hope to hear about Born and Jada as well. I know its going to be good!

however i have to warn that this book is very addictive, as i once got to university and realized i had forgotten the book at home... i actually missed 30 mins of my lecture just to get that book.IT'S THAT BAD!
I would recommend this book.
It’s so captivating - definitely worth every penny !
