Transcript of Between the Lines

Between the Lines what happens when happily ever after... isn't? Plot Characters Setting Delilah loves books as much as she dislikes school,
especially one that she just cant get enough of, a children's fairytale she found in the library that she has read so many times she has it memorized. If anyone knew she would become even more of a social outcast than she already is. But to Delilah this book is more than words on a page, she always feels that there is something deeper going on and one day she finds out there is. Turns out the prince is real and a certain 15 year old girl has caught eye. All he wants is almost impossible. To get out of the book. The pattern of events or main story in a narrative or drama Delilah: Average teenage girl, sad past due to parents divorce, in love with books and Prince Oliver, Social outcast due to her breaking head cheerleader's knee, has one friend besides Oliver named Jules. Oliver: Handsome prince in a story book, desperately wants out of the story because he wants more form his life than repeating the story every time the book is opened, in love with Delilah, does not like Seriphima the princess he rescues in the "story " but who is love with him, best friend named Frump who is a dog. written by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer Prezi by Kendyle Dayley Both are developing characters for they start off being a little shy and by the end are willing to do anything for the love they have. The rest of the characters are mostly static, staying the same through out the story ( ie. worried mother,popular cheerleader, kind librarian, etc.) someone in a book, film,etc. Conflict The time, place, and circumstances in which a narrative, drama, or film takes place. The two main characters have different environments. Delilah lives in a suburb in New Hampshire and Oliver in a "land far away" within the story. All this occurs during modern days although due to Oliver living in a fairytale he doesn't know much about it. Socially the characters are very different too. Oliver is a prince whom everyone in the story likes while Delilah is a loner in school and no one, except Jules, will talk to. The mood of both characters is unhappiness with their life and the wanting of more prompting Delilah to read books and Oliver to grab the attention of the reader with weird things while they read The conflict in the book is an external conflict with a man vs. circumstance subdivision. This is because Oliver and Delilah are struggling against the confines of the book and the unfortunate situation of Oliver being inside. Also they have to fight against the people in Delilah's world who refuse to believe her Opposition between characters or forces in a work of drama or fiction, especially opposition that motivates or shapes the action of the plot. Imagery Allusions The use of vivid or figurative language to represent objects, actions, or ideas Some quotes that show Imagery in "Between the Lines" "He is drawn in color, his jet-black hair ruffled by the breeze, his arms straining as he scales the sheer rock face. His bottle green velvet tunic is tattered: singed from Pyro's fiery breath and torn from his escape from shackles on the pirate ship. His dagger is clenched between his teeth so that he can grasp the next ledge. His face is turned toward the ocean, where the ship slips into the distance."

" Her skin was blue, patterned with a web of scales. her hair was a wild black cloud, seaweed twisted into its crown, flowing behind translucent, spiny ears. Two sets of gills undulated on her cheeks and beneath her emaciated rib cage, which tapered into a muscular, finned tail that reflected flashes of copper and gold. She had no bridge to her nose, just deep-set nostrils that flared above the cavern of her toothless smile." Allusions from "Between the Lines" "This is not a Nook, a Kindle Fire, or an iPad, just a very ordinary old book." "No, but it's not like Cinderella is working at Starbucks -
Cinderella? Starbucks? Oliver says.
Exactly. You wouldn't survive ten seconds in this world" an implied or indirect reference especially in literature Theme I think the theme of this book is that "Happily Ever After" can exist. Not just within a story with dragons and princes and fantastical journeys, but with people who do whatever it takes to make it real. Personal Relevance/ Opinion a unifying idea, image, or motif, repeated or developed throughout a work I personally enjoyed this book immensely. I enjoyed how the authors had the characters communicating through the book and developing their relationship that way. I can connect with Delilah because of my love of books, and similarly the other characters, whether in the fairytale or in the real world, are very relatable. I would recommend this book to girls who love a modern twist on happily ever after.
