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.
My Rating: 5/5
Although I have never read any of Jodi Picoult's books I had high expectations for this book based on her reputation of writing good books.
I read this book in only a few hours. I flew through it as I was unable to put it down. It was hard to believe it was over 300 pages.
I really liked all the characters especially Delilah, which is weird because female protagonists are usually never my favourite characters.
My favourite aspect of this book was the concept of a book within a book. I found that really fascinating.
