Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
It has been a while since I picked up a contemporary but in efforts of slimming my TBR here I go. I was a bit nervous to read this book even though I was intrigued by the idea enough to buy it off Book Outlet.
This book follows Delilah who can hear Oliver, a Prince from a children’s book who feels trapped playing his role in the story. Together they try to find a way to get him out of the book.
This book was a collaboration between mother and daughter which was interesting. Each chapter alternates from Delilah’s POV to Oliver’s POV to the storyline of the children book Oliver is a part of. The layout of the pages was a nice surprise and the use of colored fonts really helped with the transition of the POVs.
Again I sort of wish that the attraction between Oliver and Delilah had room to grow. I wish that I wasn’t that picky but I still enjoyed the book. The conditions both characters were in though made the whole attraction understandable that I did not mind that much.
Three and a half stars.
I am actually looking forward to reading the sequel that’s already out just to see how the story plays out. I would find it interesting how Oliver and Delilah would function when Oliver is out of his element. Supposedly the sequel could be a standalone but I like having the backstory just so I could understand the circumstances better.
