Once upon a time in a land far, far away there lived a brave king and a beautiful queen, who were so much in love that wherever they went, people stopped what they were doing just to watch them pass.Friday 56:
"People in the real world would kill for a happily ever after, and you're willing to just throw it away?"Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer. It has been languishing on my Kindle since June of 2013. Here is the description from Amazon:
I look away from her. "It's hardly a happily ever after when you wind up right back at the beginning. I've never experienced 'after' at all."
What happens when happily ever after…isn’t?
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.
A romantic and charming story, this companion novel to Off the Page will make every reader believe in the fantastical power of fairy tales.
