Author: Tammara Webber
Publication date: August 29th, 2012
Genre(s): Young Adult (Romance)
After hearing so many great things about Tammara Webber's books, I just knew I had to pick them up. I'm a huge fan of contemporary books, and I was so excited to get into another great contemporary series. Between the lines talks about a girl named Emma Price. Emma is home schooled, and has an agent. It's the first time I read a book that talks about a girl who is on her way to become an actress. I really found it refreshing, and I always find how the agent stuff works interesting, and how the actors get the roles and etc. When Emma's agent gets her an audition to the famous new hot movie, School Pride, the story starts becoming way more interesting. I found it weird how Emma wasn't that ecstatic about getting the role, because she was on the verge of wanting to live a normal life, or lead the celebrity life. Emma gets to audition with the hot new actor, Reid Alexander. It was very interesting to see how the two characters would act together, so I was actually excited about the audition scene more than Emma was!
The characters in this story were very interesting to read about. The book was from multiple POV's. From Reids and Emmas. I'm a huge fan of multiple POV's, because you kind of get the whole idea of what the two characters are thinking! The interesting part of Between The Lines is that there were more characters we got to meet. There were the other actors in the School Pride film, and I really like how they were involved throughout the story. We had the amazing Graham, who was my personal favorite character, and there were the rest of the cast, Brooke, Tadd, and Quinton. I know many people have a problem with love triangles, but I absolutely LOVED it in this book. It was so interesting and always had me turning the pages. I also really enjoyed Tammara Webber's writing style! The flow was great, and she never included any unnecessary details, which authors always seem to do in their books.
Overall, I think Between The lines was a great debut novel! I also loved how I never seemed to be right of what I expected to happen later. I always seem to know what happens, especially in contemporaries, but Between The Lines was seriously full of surprises! I finally understand what the big fuss is, and I'm glad I took a chance to read her books! If you're looking for a fun, chill contemporary that will leave you surprised, I totally recommend Between The Lines.
