Published June 26th 2012 by Simon Pulse
New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult and her teenage daughter present their first-ever novel for teens, filled with romance, adventure, and humor.What happens when happily ever after…isn’t? Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a book—one book in particular. Between the Lines may be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah. And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom. Delilah and Oliver work together to attempt to get Oliver out of his book, a challenging task that forces them to examine their perceptions of fate, the world, and their places in it. And as their attraction to each other grows along the way, a romance blossoms that is anything but a fairy tale.
This might be the cutest book I've ever read. It was just so sweet! It reminded me SO much of The Great Good Thing by Roderick Townley, which I loved as a child. It was really adorable, but that is really all it is. Don't go into it thinking that you'll be wowed, or that you'll be chomping at the bit to find out what happens... it's just not that type of book. It is one that kept me entertained while I was reading it, but I was never pulled into it, if that makes sense. I also think that it might be geared toward the younger side of the YA spectrum. I totally recommend it though, I really enjoyed it.
