Yes, this is written by Jodi Picoult and her daughter, Samantha Van Leer. Let’s get that out of the way. If you were Ms. Picoult and your daughter wanted to give up free time to write up a unique story idea, wouldn’t you use your clout to get it done? Besides, the voice and plot is decidedly not Picoult.
There are two perspectives: Delilah, in green sans serif font, is a modern teenager obsessed with an old rare fairytale. Oliver is the prince between the pages,who wants a life beyond the book. He’s in a classic blue serif type. The fairy tale that enables Delilah and Oliver to meet is in standard black.
True love, being trapped in your own life and rewriting your story are themes throughout Between the Lines. It’s a fun, modern fairy tale that gives everyone a happy ending.
