This book is a collaboration between mother and daughter. It is aimed at the Young Adult audience and has lovely illustrations throughout the book. Jodie’s daughter Samantha came up with the idea. I must say it is very clever idea, and I wish I had thought of it. Sigh!
While Jodie Picoult books are usually about fairly heavy moral issues, this book is a romance within a fairy story. The main character in the ‘real world’ is Delilah, a bookworm ,who loves a book called, Between the Lines, and is obsessed by the fairy story. The main character in the fairy story is called Prince Oliver. He is a rebellious teenager who thinks there should be more to life than being a character in a book. Delilah is the only reader who can hear him. Over time they fall in love, so the book is actually a fairy story within a fairy story. While for some adult readers it may not be their cup of tea, I found it charming. Jodie actually drops in some writing hints along the way. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone so suffice to say, I love a happy ending.
