In this delightful companion novel to Off the Page, #1 New York Times bestselling authors Jodi Picoult and her daughter and cowriter, Samantha van Leer, present the YA novel that started it all! Filled with romance, adventure, and humor, the magic jumps off the page (literally) in a story you’ll never forget.

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.

A romantic and charming story, this companion novel to Off the Page will make every reader believe in the fantastical power of fairy tales.

    By Julie Zausmer
    I went to a book reading and signing for this book. Jodi Picoult and her daughter are such talented writers. I liked the story line since it was a concept others would love to be in. Can't wait for the sequel in May. Definitely going to be reading the next one
  • Don't Waste Your Time

    Unfortunately, this has potential, but was really only published because Samantha Van Leer's mother is Jodi Picoult. Never would have been picked up otherwise. Has potential, but has about as much maturity as the middle schoolers in the book. Most ends don't tie up perfectly; the conclusion actually made me angry. Really bad. Don't read.
  • AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

    The best book I've ever read. definitely worth it.
  • Jodi did great guiding her daughter in bringing this romantic fantasy to life.

    While this book is not the average style for Jodi it is a fantastic story. It took a few chapters to get the idea of the structure of the story. Maybe she was helping publish her daughter. But the result was a unique story with a great delivery in the style of writing. She did well instructing her daughter of creating this book. I found it to be a quick read, I enjoyed the simpler story. It is truly a preteen book. But the girl in all us women can easily enjoy it. As well as all our teen girls in our lives. Hoping Jodi's daughter has several more stories in mind. I will definitely read Samantha's books if she continues to allow her mother to mentor her writing. Second generation with a fresh mind coming up with creative stories.
