From #1 New York Times bestselling authors Jodi Picoult and her daughter and coauthor, Samantha van Leer, comes OFF THE PAGE, a tender and appealing romantic YA novel filled with humor, adventure, and just a little bit of magic.Meet Oliver, a prince literally taken from the pages of a fairy tale and transported into the real world. Meet Delilah, the girl who wished Oliver into being. It's a miracle that seems perfect at first.

But he also looks at Delilah as if she's the only girl in the world--the only girl in any world--and Delilah can't help feeling that being with him is a dream come to life.But not every story can have a happy ending. Because the book wants Oliver back. And it will turn both worlds upside down to get him. Oliver and Delilah will have to decide what--and who--they're...

Off the Page was so good! It had me shaken with emotion at certain times, and laughing out loud at others. I loved the first book (Between the Lines), and I enjoyed this one just as much. It was an amazing journey, and a really heartfelt and connectable story. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good book.

Although it states on the cover that this is a companion to “Between the Lines”, this book is clearly a sequel to its surprising and enchanting predecessor.

“Off the Page” takes up where “Between the Lines” ends and proves once again that happily ever after is strictly a fairy tale concept. Real-life woes provide joys and sorrows for the newly liberated Oliver and the authors don’t spare him or the reader as he attempts to negotiate the tricky minefield that is—gasp!—high school.

Prepare to have your heartstrings wrung as Oliver, Edgar, Delilah and Jules realize that sacrifices must be made and losses endured in order for the greater good to prevail. This novel ably brings adults into its sphere as it forces its adolescent characters to negotiate grown-up problems. The question of doing the right thing as opposed to getting what you want is explored and, sadly, not everyone is happy at the end. But, as with all fine books and great travels, it is the journey that matters not the finish.

Pretty good sequel but still a very average book. Would have liked some more captivating plot lines

I love this book and now can't wait to read the first book. I only wish that I'd read Between The Lines first.

The book was okay, but I feel like they should not have wrote a sequel. They lived happily ever after in the first book the end.

Off the Page is a twist combining a fairy tale and reality, otherwise a great read!

Reader, do you believe in Fate? Do you believe that somewhere, there's a grand plan for each of us? If so, then we might as well consider ourselves to be characters... and our lives a story. Or maybe you believe that we fall into our future blindly, drifting from adventure to adventure, our journey zigzagging not according to plan but according to pure chance. Or just maybe, as random and haphazard as our lives seem-maybe that's exactly what the author had in mind.
