520    A masterful narrative-with echoes of Evicted and The Color
       of Law-that brings to life the structures, policies, and 
       beliefs that divide us. Mark Lange and Nicole Smith have 
       never met, but if they make the moves they are 
       contemplating-Mark, a white suburbanite, to West Baltimore,
       and Nicole, a black woman from a poor city neighborhood, 
       to a prosperous suburb-it will defy the way the Baltimore 
       region has been programmed for a century. It is one region,
       but separate worlds. And it was designed to be that way. 
       In this deeply reported, revelatory story, duPont Award-
       winning journalist Lawrence Lanahan chronicles how the 
       region became so highly segregated and why its fault lines
       persist today. Mark and Nicole personify the enormous 
       disparities in access to safe housing, educational 
       opportunities, and decent jobs. As they eventually pack up
       their lives and change places, bold advocates and 
       activists-in the courts and in the streets-struggle to 
       figure out what it will take to save our cities and 
       communities: Put money into poor, segregated 
       neighborhoods? Make it possible for families to move into 
       areas with more opportunity? The Lines Between Us is a 
       riveting narrative that compels reflection on America's 
       entrenched inequality-and on where the rubber meets the 
       road not in the abstract, but in our own backyards. Taking
       readers from church sermons to community meetings to 
       public hearings to protests to the Supreme Court to the 
       death of Freddie Gray, Lanahan deftly exposes the 
       intricacy of Baltimore's hyper segregation through the 
       stories of ordinary people living it, shaping it, and 
       fighting it, day in and day out. This eye-opening account 
       of how a city creates its black and white places, its rich
       and poor spaces, reveals that these problems are not 
       intractable; but they are designed to endure until each of
       us-despite living in separate worlds-understands we have 
       something at stake.
