Rating: 5/5 stars
Summary: 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.
And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is 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.
A romantic and charming story, this companion novel to Off the Page will make every reader believe in the fantastical power of fairy tales.
Review: Oh my gosh, oh my gosh and did I mention OH MY GOSH!? This book is perfection, and I don’t just say that about any book. I’m not a huge romance novel person, more of a murder mystery type but everyone was reading this book and I got it on sale and man do I not regret getting this book at all. I can relate to the main character Delilah, being a huge fairytale lover myself and being apart of the outcast group at school as well. But the characters in this book make you fall in love with them and make you want to continue reading. The illustrations are adorable and are perfect visuals for who the character look and the feelings that are expressed through the pictures. I’m sure everyone has wanted a character from one of their books to come to life and live and be apart of the normal world. I love Oliver’s character, he is the perfect amount of dorky cute. The fact that the story takes place between to different worlds and that there is a whole other world when we close books makes me wonder if it actually comes true? Probably not, but it is nice to wonder and still believe that fairy tales come to live.
Even if you are not a huge romance person, this book is the perfect amount of action and romance. Be sure to pick up the second book as well, Off the Pages, which continues the story of Delilah’s and Oliver’s lives after the first book.
