Off the Page
Later today, I'm heading to a book club meeting. A book club of just two--my granddaughter and me.
A couple of years ago I read Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer's Between the Lines. (Samantha van Leer is Picoult's daughter.) It's a YA/tween book about a girl and her fairy tale book. The twist: the characters are tired of doing the same things over and over, many of them are unhappy with their role, and when the book is closed after the girl goes to sleep, the characters are free to move around in the book's scenery.
The girl, of course, falls in love with the prince, and the two of them try to get him out of the book and into her life in a real life way.
Off the Page is the sequel. My granddaughter gobbled up Between, and for Christmas, I gave both of us a copy of Off the Page.
We're meeting for a late lunch so we can discuss the first four chapters. And I'm a chapter behind.
I gotta leave and read...
