It wasn’t long to finish Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and her daughter Samantha van Leer. This one was definitely meant for a younger audience, which made it very easy to read thankfully. I was a little discouraged, because the last one I read was so confusing, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But it definitely renewed my faith in her writing ability!
Delilah is your typical teenage loner, but when she finds a fairy tale book in her school’s library, things change for the better. Well, kind of. She falls in love with a character, and realizes that she’s able to talk to him, and he talks back. So she then goes on a journey to see if there’s a way for her to free him from the book, so she can be with him for real.
It’s a cute premise. But at the same time, kind of dumb. I’m a bit of a cynic, and I don’t think you can find true love at age 15. You’re still growing physically and mentally, so your true personality isn’t developed. I mean I know for some people it does happen, but I think in the majority of cases, high school sweethearts don’t work out. But anyway, I still enjoyed the book either way 🙂
I’m not sure what I’m going to be reading next, so until then, Happy Reading!
