Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
9:42am Wednesday 25th July 2012 in For adults
Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer is published in hardback by Hodder & Stoughton, priced £12.99. Available now.
A collaboration between best-selling author Jodi Picoult and her debut novelist daughter Samantha Van Leer, Between The Lines is an enchanting fairy tale written for the young adult market.
Separated into three different parts: the fairy story itself; the perspective of Delilah, a 15-year-old avid reader who is infatuated with her favourite book; and the adventures of Prince Oliver, a storybook character who is desperate to discover the real world.
When Delilah notices that the illustrations within the pages seem to be changing, she initially thinks her eyes are deceiving her, until Prince Oliver takes a chance and tries to make contact - with magical results.
Interspersed with beautifully drawn illustrations, the novel is an original and unique tale. A pleasant change from Picoult's own topical courtroom fare, Between The Lines will most definitely leave you hoping for a happily ever after.
