Praised as a modern and edgier "Lolita" meets "The Catcher in the Rye," award-winning "White Chalk" is the eye-opening realistic look into the minds and actions of adolescents. Far from sugar-coated and rose-colored, this novel captures the raw, dark side of growing up. Evolved Publishing presents an intimate glance inside teenage angst and confusion, and one troubled girl's attempt to make sense of life.Hardened, awkward, and self-deprecating, Chelle Whitney wouldn't know a fairytale if it swooped down and saved her from a burning tower. She has spent her life hurting from the choices she's made, the scars she's created, and the bruises that identify her. She's one of the unlucky ones whose life is made up of demons that haunt her adolescence and threaten her adulthood. Chelle grasps desperately at whoever can rescue her from herself and her pain. Reaching for comfort from her best friend, who's outgrown her, and gripping naively to a teacher who takes entirely too much interest in her, she longs for someone who understands her. So when Troy Christiansen walks into her life, Chelle believes he could be the white knight who will finally save her. Her salvation.But can Chelle find salvation on her own terms, digging herself out of the Hell her life has created? Or will she forever be a victim of her circumstances, never breaking free of the restraints that define her? EDITORIAL REVIEW: "There is nothing improbable about 'White Chalk,' a story of a teenager whose family was down on its luck before the recession hit and whose ability to pay attention to their daughter is as meager as their finances. Chelle, smarter, prettier, quicker witted, and more engaging than she has a clue, is alone in a world stacked against her. Her solution is to change herself to find love, or at least diminish her loneliness, as she says, "I reflected back the light shining on me, empty but for the image of another." We root for Chelle in spite of her bad choices, and bad luck rapidly turning pages so eager for her to solve her problems. Pavarti K. Tyler has taken a brave position; this gripping novel breaks every rule and escapes customary boundaries. It is genre-less and difficult to pigeonhole. Is it a coming of age story? Young adult? New spin on crazy teenage romance? Psychological horror? Cautionary tale? No label, other than literary fiction, exactly fits. Yet Tyler's eye for what happens to many of our teenagers, and the psychological burdens of growing up too fast, too ignored, too alone, too poor are spot on and insightful." ~ Ann Pearlman, Pulitzer Prize Nominee and Author of "The Christmas Cookie Club." EDITORIAL REVIEW: "Tyler combines shades of 'Lolita' and 'Catcher in the Rye' in a completely new way, drawing you in with poignant characterizations. 'White Chalk' goes deep into teenage angst with understanding and clarity. Savor, share, and use this poignant book as a primer on the brutal effects of abuse, neglect, and self-esteem." ~ Rachel Thompson, Award-Winning Author of "Broken Pieces"
