Jody Picoult Debuts In Her First Young Adult Novel...
|...with her teenage daughter, Samantha!|
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.

Reviewed by Dee Dee, age 12Between the Lines is a phenomenal book that is impossible to put down. I couldn’t stop reading until I knew what happened at the end. With relatable main characters and an original plot line Between the Lines is sure to be one of the most popular books for young adults. I would recommend the book for students in grades 6 and up. There is never a dull moment and has the perfect balance of adventure and romance mixed in with a bit of humor. For fans of Inkheart this is the perfect book to read this summer.
