Description-

  • From #1 New York Times bestselling authors Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer, OFF THE PAGE is a tender and appealing YA novel filled with romance, humor, and adventure.

    Delilah and Oliver shouldn't be together. But they are together. And just as they're getting used to the possibility that happily ever after may really, truly be theirs, the universe sends them a message they can't ignore: they won't be allowed to rewrite their story.

    Delilah and Oliver must decide how much they're willing to risk for love and what it takes to have a happy ending in a world where the greatest adventures happen off the page.

    "Off the Page is just so sweet and magical. In high school, I would have given ANYTHING to crawl inside one of my favorite books to escape the real world. I wish!"--SARAH DESSEN, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Saint Anything



    From the Hardcover edition.

    April 1, 2015
    What happens when a happily-ever-after is no longer guaranteed? Picoult and van Leer, her co-author daughter, explore the real-life consequences when two star-crossed, teen lovers leave the certainty of the fictive page and give their romance a test run in the real world. In the somewhat cluttered and chaotic sequel to Between the Lines (2012), Oliver, a once-fictional charming prince, and his doppelganger, Edgar, the lonely teen son of the author of Oliver's fairy tale, have swapped places. Edgar now resides between the covers of the book, and Oliver is braving three-dimensional high school life with his one true love, Delilah. Not surprisingly, things don't go quite as planned. The swap has consequences, and as the fictional book attempts to restore order, characters from both worlds suddenly find themselves jumping on and off the pages. Watching Oliver navigate the perils of high school provides some easy laughs, and his romance with Delilah remains fairy-tale sweet, even as his rising popularity complicates things between them. But it's secondary characters, like Delilah's tough-as-nails best friend, Jules, who provide the most entertainment. Readers will likely find themselves anxiously awaiting their arrivals in scenes. Though it lacks the depth of Cornelia Funke's Inkheart series, the story is at its best when it's taken as a metafictive exploration of the relationship between a reader and a beloved book. (Fantasy. 10-14)

    Gr 7 Up-Picoult and van Leer dive back into the realm of fairy tales coming true in this companion to Between the Lines (Delacorte, 2012). Storybook prince turned real-life boyfriend, Oliver, has started high school with his true love, Delilah. Despite a few social mishaps, Oliver (being referred to as Edgar, whose place he had to take in order to escape the pages of the book) finds himself on the fast track to popularity, much to Delilah's chagrin. The two have just started to work through their new problems, when they discover something is wrong in the book from which Oliver originated. The story seems to be rewriting itself and the real Edgar (who took Oliver's place in the story) doesn't know how to lead the other characters. Soon, bigger problems arise, with more real-life beings and storybook characters switching places unintentionally, and the book's author, Edgar's mom, Jessamyn, falling ill. Is happily ever after a dream still out of reach? Readers need to have read the first title in order to follow the plot and they will easily find themselves pulled back into the world of Oliver, Delilah, and Edgar. Strong narrative voices keep the alternating chapters from becoming confusing, and the cultural references are spot-on, although they may cause the book to feel dated in a short time. VERDICT A fun, fairy-tale romance for teens who believe in happily ever after. Recommended.-Heather Webb, Worthington Libraries, OH

  • SLJ "An exploration of the nature of escapism that asks whether reality is any more real than make-believe, Between the Lines will delight readers of all ages whose imaginations willfully blur that distinction."
  • Kirkus Reviews "Between the Lines is a romance between a girl and a boy, but even more, it's a love letter to the visceral bond between a reader and a musty, beloved book. . . . The fictional Between the Lines is funny and unexpected . . . and it's fascinating to watch the authors address the problem of what it would be like to live not just in a story, but in a physical book."
  • Booklist "What wasn't to love about the exciting, imaginative story of Delilah, a high school student, and the fairy-tale prince she fell in love with, Oliver?"
  • Los Angeles Times "Jodi Picoult turns tough topics into bestsellers."
  • The Washington Post "Blockbuster novelist."
  • Boston Globe "Cultishly successful writer."
