Lifeline the novel by Abbey Lee Nash

Popular high school senior Eli Ross has the perfect life. He's captain of the lacrosse team at LionsHeart Academy, and he's dating Savannah, the hottest, most popular girl in school. But that life comes crashing down when Eli overdoses at a party and is sent to LakeShore Recovery Center, an inpatient substance abuse treatment center where he'll spend the next twenty-eight days. 


It's there that Eli meets Libby, the sharp-edged artist, whose freshly tattooed scars mirror the emotional scars Eli tries his best to ignore. Eli soon learns that if he’s to have any chance at a future, he'll first have to confront his past.

"...A gorgeously written and ultimately hopeful debut that will resonate with readers of any age."

-Karen Fortunati, author of

The Weight of Zero

“Nash, in short, has pulled off a remarkable feat, taking a topic of great relevance and—without a hint of censure or denunciation—making it integral to a tale whose only demand is that it be read in one sitting.”
