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.

-=Chapter 1=- Uninvited Enemies My alarm went beeping off. God, why did I have to wake up at 7 AM? I was Faith Baxter. Baxters shouldn't wake at 7.  Anyways, let's say some envied me, Kitty, Garroth, Lynn, Jay, Malia, Dom, and Xylia. Thanks to them, my parents were killed, I was almost killed, Jayla turned on us, and I fell into a river and gorge and broke my arm.  I love those guys.  Other than that, we are kind of heroes. We killed the government, NOW AMERICA IS IN CHAOS! YAY TO US! Well, I'm getting off track. Back to the day... I got up and got ready, putting my hair in my normal bun as always. Damn, I looked good. I stretched and got changed, opening my dorm door to the fresh, popcorn smelling scent of the hallway. My boyfriend, Garroth, was apparently still sleeping.  That lazy guy. Oh well. I stretched my large angel wings.  Oh yea. I'm a freak.  I flew up at the high ceiling and flew to my class. It really avoids the crowds, and you can high five any other bird like freaks flying bye. I landed at combat class. I took the class because of what happened with the government.  After classes finished, I decided to go to the city. I snuck to the portal and entered, walking along the sidewalk. Once I made it, I sat down on a bench until something moved on the corner of my eye.  When I saw who it was, I immediately texted on the group text.  "GUYS, THE GOVERNMENT IS BACK!"
