    Jada left home at the age of sixteen, running from her own demons and the horrors of physical abuse inflicted by her mother’s boyfriend. She partied hard, and life seemed good when she was with Born, the neighborhood kingpin whose name was synonymous with money, power, and respect. But all his love couldn’t save her from a crack addiction. Jada goes from crack addict and prostitute to survivor and back again before she finds the strength to live for herself and come out on top.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jada....She thought she could control her addition, but the addiction controlled her. It's really sad how this drug drove a wedge between her and her sisiter Ava. This book is so real....crack is taking over the world. It seems as it doesn't matter the credentials {rich, poor, educated, uneducated, beautiful, not so beautiful} once you take a hit it is hard to resist. Some of the characters remind me of my family members.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my 1st read by Allyson


    If you could take any character from White Lines out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Borne, I would like to talk to him about the way her viewed his father, Leo & Jada. Just because they were addicts doesn't mean they aren't human & should not be degraded.
