Between the Lines by: Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer

'Between the Lines' is an amazing book with a twist of fantasy and fairy tale.

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.
Delilah and Oliver work together to attempt 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 blossoms that is anything but a fairy tale.

                                                                   I give this book a
                 4.5 out of 5.

Second Chance Summer

I am a big fan of Morgan Matson's work, amy and roger's epic detour, so when I heared about her new novel second chance summer I had to have that book. It was amazing, I espically loved the way Morgan shows how Taylor Edwards guilt was eating away at her because she left both her bestfriend Lucy and her boyfriend Henry. It was so long before either one of them would forgive her but when they do, they all join together to deal with the grief of losing someone they all loved, gaining back the realantionships they thought they lost, and confining in eachother with the war that was taking over them emotionally.

I give this book a 5 out of 5.
