|Plot Summary of Twelve|
|""White Mike" wanders around the streets of NYC sellings drugs and thinking. He goes to different parties and meets people of different social classes, all of whom are shallow and uninteresting, as he tries to decide what to do with his life."
Nick Antosca, Resident Scholar
|"White Mike is a drug dealer in the Upper East side of Manhattan, New York. Through White Mike we meet a variety of characters, mostly rich teenagers, who are mixed up with drugs, sex, and, violence. The book only takes place in a matter of days, all leading up to one big party on New Years Eve with an ending no one will see coming. "
