Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer: Between the Lines
Between the Lines - Jodi Picoult’s first book for young readers, co-written with her daughter Samantha Van Leer – is for every girl who’s believed, however whimsically, that her one true soulmate lives in the pages of a book. Bookish loner Delilah is on Team Edward. But it’s not him she truly longs for; it’s Prince Oliver, the hero of a fairytale she finds in the library – and in a flight of boundary-crossing fantasy, she gets the chance to help him become real.
Jodi and Samantha share their creative journey in this special event.
Jodi Picoult is the author of 18 bestselling and widely acclaimed novels, most recently Between the Lines, a novel for younger readers, written in partnership with her teenage daughter, Samantha van Leer. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and three children.
Samantha van Leer is a junior in high school, who conceived the idea for her first novel, Between the Lines and pitched it to her mum (Jodi Picoult) while she was in the middle of a book tour.
