"The act of reading is a partnership.
The author builds a house, but the reader makes it a home."
I am a big fan of Jodi Picoult. I mean, who isn't, right. So obviously, I was really curious about this book which she had written along with her daughter. And I wasn't dissapointed at all. I loved the story very much. The whole idea about a prince trapped in a book, talking to a reader, was just so cool. I couldn't even stop reading. It was beautifully written, romantic, imaginative and really funny. I also adored illustrations that replenished the story. They made it much more unique and amusing. I would highly recommend this book to you in case you like Young Adult literature with a little something different in it...
