<i>"If I had the chance, I'd do anything to not know what tomorrow's going to bring."<br/>"People in the real world would kill for a happily ever after, and you're willing to just throw it away?"<br/>"It's hardly a happily ever after when you wind up right back at the beginning. I've never experienced 'after' at all."</i><br/>Oliver is the prince in a children's fairy tale book entitled <i>Between the Lines</i>. Every time the book opens and a reader begins, the characters all fall into place, happily playing their parts over and over. Except for Oliver... who wants to know what else is out there. And when Delilah discovers the book tucked away in her school library, she connects with Oliver, because like her, he's missing a father. Of course, his died in battle with a dragon and hers left to go marry someone else and start "a new improved family" elsewhere, but Delilah still feels a need to read the story over and over again. When Oliver decides to see if this lovely Reader notices anything different, he draws a chessboard in the sand on the beach. With that one choice, he sets into motion a rollicking love story in which two world collide and Delilah has to figure out how to get him out of the book and keep people from thinking she's crazy. If she can get him out, though, how on earth will she EXPLAIN where he came from and why he behaves so strangely (and doesn't know what detention is)? What if the process works backwards and she ends up trapped in the story? This mother-daughter author collaboration is a lighthearted romance and great fun! 7th grade and up.<br/>
