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.
Between the Lines is absolutely nothing like her other books. It seems safe to assume that her daughter, , was the main writer of this novel. The writing style seems less evolved than usual writing, along with the character development. However, there is a lot of pressure when your mother is such an accomplished author. When compared to other debut writers, Between the Lines has a very creative plot and is an interesting read. I would recommend it to eleven- to thirteen-year-old fans of fairy tales and realistic fiction.fans should be warned that
