Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer

Summary (From the Publisher):
What happens when happily ever after…isn’t?
Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a book—one book in particular.Between the Linesmay be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah.
And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom.
Delilah and Oliver work together to attempt to get Oliver out of his book, a challenging task that forces them to examine their perceptions of fate, the world, and their places in it. And as their attraction to each other grows along the way, a romance blossoms that is anything but a fairy tale.

Mrs. Lassley's Review:
During this time of year, I need a good girl book. With Between the Lines, I got it. With the point of view going back and forth, we are able to see so much. For me the ending was too neat and, as always, I want to know what happened after "Happily Ever After." Over all, I would recommend this book to any girl who wants her story book characters to come to life.
