Off the Page

By: Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer
Location: FIC PIC
Genre: a FICPIC - Fairy Story retold

It has different colored print for each characters chapters POV- there are three of them.. It has luscious illustrations by Yvonne Gilbert - they are traditional beauties. In fact is has twelve full-color illustrations, and black-and-white decorations throughout. It is a stand alone story- which is refreshing but if you have read Between The Lines first- that is a good thing!!Escapism at its most fairytale-ish best!

 This story is a beautiful "fairy-tale" about how your prince can get out of your favourite book and live your happily ever after in a real world. Of course, nothing is as easy as it seems. 
Sixteen-year-old Delilah is finally united with Oliver—a prince literally taken from the pages of a fairy tale. There are, however, complications now that Oliver has been able to enter the real world. To exist in Delilah’s world, Oliver must take the place of a regular boy. Enter Edgar, who agrees to take Oliver’s role in Delilah’s favorite book. In this multilayered universe, the line between what is on the page and what is possible is blurred, but all must be resolved for the characters to live happily ever after.

 OFF THE PAGE, is a tender and appealing romantic YA novel filled with humor, adventure, and magical relationships.

“Well, you have to find that rare someone for whom you’re not putting on a show. Someone who shines a spotlight in your direction—not because you’re who they need you to be, or who they want you to be…just because you’re you.

"This is a laugh out loud book, full of witty banter and a cutesy love story." Kaira
