An enchanting YA novel from Number One bestselling author Jodi Picoult, co-written with her teenage daughter.
Meant for each other . . .
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 there are complications. To exist in Delilah's world, Oliver must take the place of a regular boy. Enter Edgar, who agrees to play Oliver's role in the pages of Delilah's favorite book. But just when it seems that the plan will work, everything gets turned upside down.
In this multilayered universe, the line between what's on the page and what's possible is blurred. Is there a way for everyone to live happily ever after?
OFF THE PAGE is a stand-alone novel as well as the sequel to the authors' bestseller BETWEEN THE LINES, and is perfect for readers looking for a fairytale ending.

'A great contribution to the ever versatile YA fiction genre... A follow-up to [Picoult and van Leer's] 2012 collaboration Between the Lines, Off the Page also stands alone perfectly... It's fair to say this, not so young, adult was enthralled to the end and only left me wishing that I had the imagination to come up with such a brilliant formula for a story' * Press Association *
