Between the lines : a novel
Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
Teen Fiction PICOULT

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Prolific and bestselling author Picoult teams up with her teenage daughter to pen a clever YA romance about the magical relationship between a loner and her fictional "Prince Charming." Imagine 15-year-old Delilah McPhee's surprise when she starts to have a conversation with Prince Oliver, the hero of a fairy tale she adores. From Oliver she learns that characters in a story lead very different lives when a book is shut-in Oliver's "reality," the story's villain is actually a butterfly aficionado, and Oliver has no interest in his betrothed, Seraphima. Elements from Picoult's other novels-alternating character viewpoints with distinguishing fonts, snappy chapter endings-are present, and the story is peppered with pop culture references to The Hunger Games, the Kindle Fire, and the X-Men, as well as comic relief in the form of characters like a talking horse that thinks it has a weight problem. The reason given for Delilah's obsession with the fairy tale-like her, Oliver grew up without a father-is weak, but that's unlikely to trouble readers who will be swept up by the romantic premise. Ages 12-up. Agent: Laura Gross, Laura Gross Literary Agency. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
