For her first-ever young-adult novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult collaborates with her teenage daughter Samantha van Leer on an exhilarating work of cross-generational appeal—a story of romance, adventure, and humor.

What happens when happily ever after … isn’t?

Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a book—one book in particular. Between the Lines may be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah.

Then one day, Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, he’s more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom.

Delilah and Oliver work together to get Oliver out of his book, a challenging task that forces them to examine their perceptions of fate, the world, and their places in it. And as their attraction to each other grows along the way, a romance that is anything but a fairy tale begins to blossom.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A compulsively readable charmer. The teen dialogue and interior monologues feel authentic, while Picoult’s practiced hand balances humor with larger issues such as abandonment, hope, and existential quandaries related to fate and human nature. Both silhouette and pencil drawings abound; characters climb in and around the text to excellent effect. Younger readers and their parents will appreciate the gentle, wholesome romance, with nary a shred of paranormal action. The tender, positive tone and effective pacing that builds to a satisfying finish will inspire readers to pass the book to a friend—or reread it themselves.”


  • “A clever YA romance about the magical relationship between a loner and her fictional ‘Prince Charming.’ Elements from Picoult’s other novels—alternating  character viewpoints with distinguishing fonts, snappy chapter endings—are present, and the story is peppered with pop-culture references to The Hunger Games, the Kindle Fire, and the X-Men, as well as comic relief in the form of characters like a talking horse that thinks it has a weight problem. Readers…will be swept up by the romantic premise.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “In her first foray into teen fiction, Picoult and her coauthor daughter deliver an enjoyable, metafictive twist on the traditional teen-romance novel…Book lovers in particular are likely to get a kick out of the blurring of the lines between character and reader, fact and fiction…Fizzy fairy-tale fun.”
