Lose yourself in White Time
White Time is mind time, body time, soul time, heart time.
White Time is other worlds, other dimensions, other states of being.
White Time is out of time.
In this transcendent collection of short stories, Margo Lanagan, author of the award-winning story collection Black Juice, deftly navigates a new set of worlds in which the boundaries between reality and possibility are paper-thin . . . and sometimes disappear altogether.

The author lives in Sydney, Australia, with her partner and their two sons.From Booklist:
Gr. 8-11. Although this is the second story collection by Australian author Lanagan to reach American readers, it was actually published abroad several years before her 2006 Printz Honor Book, Black Juice. Fans of Lanagan's fantastical, often surreal sensibility will regard its arrival as long overdue. Further showcasing her mastery of the craft, each story underscores Lanagan's talent for inspiring curiosity, disturbing sensibilities, and provoking thought. The collection comprises 10 stories of varying lengths that together demonstrate great versatility and highlight the author's talent for inventing entirely new realities and subtly shifting our own. The futuristic title story features a girl whose career exploration project finds her floating in a reservoir of "time out of time," where she is mentored by a troubled man who redirects stuck entities from other parts of the universe. "The Queen's Notice," set in an antlike hive, follows a befuddled warrior-creature whose valor requires him to assume a new role. In "Tell and Kiss," physical weight is accumulated by the unhealthy storage of thought and feeling, creating a problem for a boy secretly falling for his best female friend. The singular perspectives, environments, goals, and challenges of Lanagan's distinctive characters will both intrigue and stimulate teen minds. Holly Koelling
