With a movie in the works, now is the time to pick this one up. Imagine if every crush you’ve ever had suddenly found out how you once felt about them?

Will the embarrassment be unbearable or will love actually come her way?
Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer
What happens between the lines “once upon a time” and “happily ever after”? You’re about to find out.
We all know the classic fairy tales. But for most of us, they are merely just stories we enjoyed as children, stories we escaped into to get away from the real world. Just tales, right? But what if your favorite story could come to life or had a life of its own when you weren’t reading it?
Delilah would rather be buried in a book than be anywhere else, especially school. She finds a fairy tale stuffed into the stacks in her high school library and can’t seem to put it down. She is drawn to it and one day something crazy happens. Prince Oliver, the fairy tale’s Prince Charming, speaks to her from the pages. Delilah knows this isn’t possible but what if?
What if he is real and what if they could find a way to be together? Find out what really goes on “Between the Lines.”
