LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
The story line for this book was a little on the weak side. One thing that I can not phathom is a mother not letting her kid know who his father is or even telling him a name even if it aint the truth. I know some parents hold a lot of their pasts inside but eventually someone around usually says something to the kid or someone says something to the kid. I know this because of personal experience the truth always comes to light no matter what. One thing I was waiting to find out was if Jamari and Born were really brothers I know that Jamari was a liar but sometimes there may be some truth in a lie. The ending of the story took me by surprise because it ended without the readers knowing what will happen next. I just can not believe how stupid Sunny turned out to be and how selfish but if you think about it she never had time to grow up so she is stuck in that mine mine mine mindframe. All in all the book was ok I loved the first one better because I felt like I was part of the story this story left me with a lot of unanswered questions that I hope get answered in book 3.
Well I really enjoyed part 2 of White lines, I felt it was a good follow up to part 1. It held my attention from beginning to end.
First of all let me say, I was pleasantly surprised to find out there was going to be a part 2 to White Lines. I absolutely loved part 1! This one, part 2, it was a good read. It was not up there with part 1, but it was good. I say that mainly because this one ended so abruptly. The first book was really long and detailed, but because it was soooo good, the length didn’t matter. So I was a bit surprised when I saw how short this book was.
Jada and Born, my two favorite characters in this series, need to get it together. I am totally beside myself with these two people. I need them with each other. I need Jada to find some peace and happiness. She’s been through so much in her short life. It’s a wonder she’s not in the psych ward with her son. I didn’t like her decision not to have Born come to her son’s hospital room and meet with the CPS worker. I understand that she wants to put her son first, but there is a balance she needs to learn. I hope this is not the end of their story. Sunny on the other hand, needs to get somewhere and sit down. This woman seems to be trying to live out her younger days that she missed because of becoming so seriously involved with a man at the tender age of 17. She is all over the place and she's knocking 40. Now she's messed up poor Malcolm. Sunny needs to stop being selfish and grow up. As for Ava, I really don't know. Maybe we'll get to see her find a love in the next novel.
The bottom line is, this was a good read. I hope the shortness of this novel means that the next part will be here soon. There is so much to be addressed. I look forward to reading Tracy Brown's next project.
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it shows how drugs can effect your past, future and present but the only way to navigate through it is to dig deep and find a strength that can not be broken. I think both ladies in the next book are going to need that strength.
I think the most memorable moment was when Mercedes told Sunny about how she was so proud of her mother for no longer being on drugs even though Sunny knew she was using. This situation did not make her stop using but made her feel so bad that she wanted to use more. This was the same issue that Jada had in the first book where her guilt of her lies made her want to cover it up with drugs. I think that this scene shows how powerful an addiction can be. I was hoping that Mercedes love and belief in her mother would have stopped Sunny from continuing but in the end it wasn't enough.
I have listened to the first White Lines Novel and I think she did way better and was more settled in the characters where they sounded more distinct.
I think it would be Born. He sound like a wonderful man and I think he loves Jada but I can see where he is struggling to understand and be there for her. I would like to provide unbiased perspective on the situation.
I discovered this series by accident, and loved the original White Lines. Not sure why I felt that this one was lacking. All of my characters were present and it was nice to continue their story, but for some reason this story was lacking. I will however buy book three when its done just to see how this all ends.
I love to read books but I think I've found a new passion Audio Books. I love Urban Fiction as well as self help books.
No, I only read or listen to a book once.
This wasn't nearly as good as the original White Lines. It didn't have the detail and it left a lot of unanswered questions.
I love her narration.
Jada - she has had it so hard. She just needs a friend to listen to her
I was definitely one of those people that was enchanted by Jada and Born's story and the love they share in White Lines. Although it is a great story by itself, I was truly excited when I found out there would be a sequel. When I finally listened to White Lines II, however, I was a little disappointed in what this great story has turned into. I felt like a lot of detail went into situations that ultimately proved to be meaningless dialog. Also for some reason Mindy Milford was mentioned a few times too many. I almost thought she was going to be a break through character! I just hated how short this book was and wish time wasted in some places was better spent addressing other issues.
This book, in a way, read like it was written by someone else. It's like the characters completely changed identities in just a few years. Born was made to seem a bit too eager to want to stray from/ doubt Jada. Sunny and Jada once were consistencies in each other's lives and in this book not so much. I was thrown off by the fact that there were several things left unaddressed as opposed to this book's prequel, White Lines I, in which left no stone unturned as far as detail. I still wonder why Zion never followed up with what Gillian called and told him? Why wasn't the issue pressed as Sunny continued to cop from Gillian? Why does Jamari have the power to still haunt Jada from beyond the grave? How was Sunny in a relationship for a year with someone she didn't know had a habit? And Sheldon...wth?!
Sunny's whole story was upsetting to say the least. Ten years later Sunny still cannot deal with the death of Dorian to the point that she has to take percocet everyday? Then she gets the genius idea to pick up her old habit of cocaine she thinks she can handle it? I don't like what the author did to Dorian's memory either. He was great guy who did have his faults in WLI, but in this book he was made out to be a predator or something. The ending definitely felt rushed and I wish the book didn't have the "there will be a sequel" cliche cliffhanger ending on top of it. Overall the book was okay. I appreciated that it was yet another story about characters that I'd fallen in love with, but I honestly think it could have been better. Nonetheless, I remain a Tracy Brown fan and look forward to the next book.
Tell us about yourself!
I really enjoyed part 2! I thought the story line was a great pick up from part 1. I also enjoyed how Tracy is mixing characters from snapped into white lines. I was not disappointed. Just anxious for white lines 3!!
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
After listening to the first book in the series I was excited to read about Sunny's story. I love that the same people read the book so the voices were the same. Overall I am disappointed. I feel that the new story lines are hurried and not as well developed as in the first book. And to get to the end of the book with Sunny's story ending the way it did left to much unanswered. There was not 1 story line that was wrapped up so everything is left in the air. Not that I expect every story line to end happily ever after but in the fist book Jada & Born's story ended realistically but in this book we are just left hanging. I will definitely read the next book because I can't stand not knowing how the story ends but I am very disappointed in this book.
I also don't mind the sound effects but sometimes throughout this book they were overdone.
The ending was a real let down. The book just stopped without any resolution. It left you wondering about Jada, Ava, and Sunny. The story line also involved the kids so much it should have concluded with them somehow... I would have been good if the book would have given some kind of resolution.
I think she is a good story teller so I would most like try another book. Not sure if I would be interested in getting a part II of a storyline for the fear that it will be another let down.
easy listening, engaging, and understandable.
