What a special book. Mother and daughter knock this one out of the park. Very rarely can a book make me smile and laugh out loud, but this one did. Awesome read.

I expected so much more but what I got read itself like a book written by a 12 year-old for 12 year-olds. I'd want my child to read something more substancial.

The story itself is as flat and one dimensional as the fairytale the main character is reading.

I truly believe this book would have never been published if it weren't for the mother's name (Picoult) printed on it.

I gave up half way through it.

What happens to the characters of a book when the book is not in use? Delilah does not fit in at her school. She has one friend that she confides in. There is one thing that she does not share with this friend; she loves the Fairy Tale: Between the Lines. She takes it with her everywhere. It is not normal for a teen to be reading this kind of story but Delilah cannot put the book down. She knows every word, every picture till one day she notices something is different.

You will either really like the book or hate it. From reading reviews, I found that the people that did not like it were expecting another Adult Fiction book from Picoult based on Love/ Life/ Tragedy. This is not an Adult Fiction book, it is a story written for Pre-Teen to Teen girls. I am neither and enjoyed the book. I am saving it for my daughter and will recommend it to other young adults.

If you would to read her books in order:
Songs of the Humpback Whale: A Novel in Five Voices (1992)
Harvesting the Heart (1993)
Picture Perfect (1995)
Mercy (1996)
The Pact (1998)
