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 at 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 28 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.
Praise for Lifeline
"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." - Kirkus Reviews
“Lifeline plunges the reader into Eli’s rough journey—Nash doesn’t hold back. Buckle up.” - K.M. Walton, author of CRACKED, EMPTY, & ULTIMATUM
"Tragically timely, this story dives deep into the brutal and heroic work that recovery requires. An addict's self-denial and self-destruction is laid out with raw honesty and while the path back is steep, Nash shows redemption is well within reach. A gorgeously written and ultimately hopeful debut that will resonate with readers of any age." - Karen Fortunati, author of THE WEIGHT OF ZERO
"Nash knows exactly what she’s doing here, and it’s clear on every page. One of the best small-press gems I’ve read in a long time." - Dahlia Adler, author of BEHIND THE SCENES, UNDER THE LIGHTS, and JUST VISITING, and NA novel LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
"This is a must read this year. It does deal with sensitive matters, but it is done very tastefully. I give this book a solid five stars." - Up All Night with Books
