Review quote

[The] central conceit remains fascinating in a witty fairy tale * Independent * 'A great contribution to the ever versatile YA fiction genre... A follow-up to [Picoult and van Leer's] 2012 collaboration Between the Lines, Off the Page also stands alone perfectly... It's fair to say this, not so young, adult was enthralled to the end and only left me wishing that I had the imagination to come up with such a brilliant formula for a story' * Press Association * 'Beautifully illustrated with captivating, detailed drawings. It's quite easy to imagine one of them coming to life, just as it did in the story.... The story is humorous and exciting with lots of unpredictable plot twists' -- The Book Bag The book is instantly magical, transporting the reader into a world where fiction is reality and the divide between reader and book has been crossed. BETWEEN THE LINES will have you guessing to the very end and devouring each page at great speed. With gorgeous illustrations dotted around the pages, it is the kind of book you can escape into, just like Delilah. A delight. -- Novelicious Prolific and bestselling author Picoult teams up with her teenage daughter to pen a clever YA romance * Publishers Weekly * In her first foray into teen fiction, Picoult and her co-author 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' * Kirkus Reviews * A brilliantly romantic story of love across a divide in this entertaining and also thought-provoking story about stories, characters and readers . . . Funny, touching and clever, teens will love this unusual love story. -- www.lovereading4kids.co.uk For Twilight fans it should tick all the boxes. * Daily Mail * Praise for Between the Lines:Unleash the child in you! She [Picoult] has teamed up with her daughter to write an adventure tale for teens, and it has plenty of action and romance to keep younger readers happy . . . * Heat * A lovely fairy tale emphasizing the importance of family and creativity * Booklist * Fairy-tale sweet * Kirkus Reviews * A fun, fairy-tale romance for teens who believe in happily ever after * SJL * Praise for 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 ANYTHINGshow more
