Book Review: Between The Lines by Jodi Picoult

Jul 30, 2012

Bestselling author Jodi Picoult takes her first stab at teen fiction with an irresistible story that shows how love can conquer all odds. Kidzworld reviews Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult.

You Complete Me

Both Deliliah and Oliver's lives weren't complete until they met each other. They formed an instant connection and knew they wanted to be together. There's only one problem. They lead two very different lives - so different that being together is literally impossible

World's Apart

Delilah lives with her mom, has one friend and is a virtual outcast in school. Oliver is a prince in a fairy tale storybook. The two met when Deliliah happened to find Between the Lines, an old fairy tale book, in her school library, and noticed that there were changes occuring in the story each time she read it. Meanwhile, inside the book, Oliver was desperate to get Deliliah's attention and escape the confines of his repetitive life as a prince. 

Their Mission

Delilah and Oliver make it their mission to figure out a way to remove him from the fairy tale so that the two of them can enjoy a real, unscripted life together in Deliliah's world. But the task is much easier said than done.

The Bottom Line

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and her teen co-author, Samantha Van Leer, is a cute story, but isn't deserving of bestseller status. If it does become a bestseller, it's only because Jodi Picoult wrote it. While the story is marketed as "young adult," it could appeal to a middle grade audience, as it's too corny for a 14+ readership at times. Overall we'd give this book a 3.5 out of 5.

We do the same thing as you guys haha! Mainly, we just burst crackers, but yeah there are family gatherings. :D  We buy gold too. c: It's a culture all over India.  And yeah, there is a difference in rituals and stuff, but it's because India is so diverse.  It's really not like that haha. People can be rude and decent, that has got nothing to do with where you live in the world. :3

How do you people celebrate this festival? Yeah, ritual differences lies . I mean today the people of north used to purchase gold coins n etc etc; the things made from gold. It's like our tradition , I meant almost all the north peoples . But south Indians r very decent from the north people ( especially Punjabis).
