about

From #1 New York Times bestselling authors Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer, OFF THE PAGE is a tender and appealing YA novel filled with romance, humor, and adventure.
 
Delilah and Oliver shouldn’t be together. But they are together. And just as they’re getting used to the possibility that happily ever after may really, truly be theirs, the universe sends them a message they can’t ignore: they won’t be allowed to rewrite their story.
 
Delilah and Oliver must decide how much they’re willing to risk for love and what it takes to have a happy ending in a world where the greatest adventures happen 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 Anything

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BORING One of the most boring books I have ever read! It is very slow and the story is weird and kinda makes no sense. A lot of things that are important to the plot are just ignored and written away with the "because magic" cliche, which I found kinda insulting after a few chapters in. This book made me feel like I was being talked down to as I read it, like the reader dose not need to know how any of this crazy stuff came to be because it's magic, it is lazy story telling. Its just another bad teen romance story delivered in a really awful way. All the characters are boring and cliche and none of the relationships are believable at all. It is very "middle school romance" if you are an adult and have or are in love you will know what I mean. The whole plot of the prince coming out of the story book to be with this high school girl (who for some reason is obsessed with a fake character out of a children's book) is just not interesting. With such a weird concept I thought the book may be worth a try, but it was just not good. I only got through it because I was on a road trip and it was the only book I had. I was very disappointed because I have heard lots of good things about the author, hopefully her other books are much better then this one because I would give it no stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this. This was such a lovely fairy-tale like story with a perfect combination.. or clashing of fairy tale reality and the kind of reality that we all go through. The romance, the drama, the turmoil, the heartbreak, the progressive plot thickening and leading up to the ending, all of it made for a really good story. The book is also literally so beautiful with its cover and the different colour fonts. I am in love. And I also found that the last two pages were very inspiring! <b><i>It's quite difficult to know who owns a story. Is it the writer, who crafted it? The characters, who carry the plot forward? Or you, the reader, who breathes life into them? Or perhaps none of the three can exist without the other. Perhaps without this magical combination, a story would be nothing more than words on a page."</i></b>

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Read Glad I bought this book when it first came out. It's a simple read but the words used really describe the story and provides a visual. If looking for a simple but great read, this is the one. Very easy to finish this book in one sitting. Looking to read other books by Jodi Picoult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EDAHE When I finished Between the Lines I did not think it needed a sequel as the book ended happily ever after, yet I was intrigued by the idea of the story continuing. Off the Page is a great book that is written just as well as the first one, with adventure, romance, heartbreak and a good dose of reality thrown into the mix. It is not as fast paced as the previous novel, which is most likely the result to multiple stories being interconnected at once. Each character is brought to light and each has their own story to be told. You will learn more about those who were bystanders in the previous novel. Overall, it was a good book that I found myself unable to put down and constantly questioning what was going to happen next. I found myself happy, sad, embarrassed and angry along with the characters in the book. It is great read for anyone who wants a little bit of magic and the promise of a happily ever after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What Happens Next?! I received an ARC from the author’s agent through a Twitter giveaway in the end of February. The book arrived a couple weeks later and I devoured it in about 5 days. It was amazing! My actual rating is however 4.5 but if I were to round it to one whole number, this novel deserves a 5. This story is sweet and comically funny. I can still remember literally saying “HAH” out loud at a very funny line that I won’t spill about (you’ll have to find out for yourself). What I loved most about this novel more than Between the Lines is the fact that I felt as though this story pushed the boundaries that I was expecting. I would have to say there is slight explicitness, and the best part is that I felt as though the characters were being rebellious. Again, mainly since this story is about Oliver adjusting to the world around him. With that said, and aside from the humour that’s also in the story, Oliver’s new world he’s adjusting to is actually the real world we’re all in and really a complete opposite from his fantasy kingdom. Young adults reading this novel I believe will greatly appreciate how the real world really is, which is seen through the eyes of Oliver.
