well better than I expected,
This review is from: Between the Lines (Kindle Edition)
I have been a fan of Jodi Picoult since I was 18, I have read 9 of her books ( I have to start reading her books again) and I have felt wowed after every single one, so when I first heard she was doing a YA I was partly worried and excited. I was worried because I thought that it wouldn't be as good as her others and that it just wouldn't work and that's why I put of this book for so long. I wish I hadn't though, I wish I didn't doubt her.
I love everything about this story. I love the character's, I love the story within a story, I love the little illustrations I just love it. But what I love the most about it is I really feel like I connected with Delilah. How many of us have read a book and become so obsessed with it that we wished to pluck a character out or just jump in ourself? I know I have and I think you'd be lying if you said you hadn't felt it even once. The way a connection between the reader and book is captured in the story is amazing. Yes I saw the ending coming but it didn't take away the joy I felt having read it.
The characters were lovely, even the sub characters. Each of them had their own story to tell and each of them got to tell that in one way or another. The only character I felt we didn't get enough about was Jules so that was a bit of a let down but I'm happy to say it was the only one. The idea behind this story was just so unique and brilliant that it leads me to ask the question, why hasn't anyone thought of it before? and if they have and I'm just missing the books where can I find more like this?
I know some people had grievances about the book, not everyone can like it. But I for one am not one of those people :).
