Novelist Jodi Picoult has finished editing Between the Lines, a YA novel she co-wrote with her daughter. Publication has been set for June 2012.
Here’s more from Picoult’s Facebook announcement: “Color me happy! My daughter Sammy and I JUST finished editing the young teen chapter book we co-wrote, BETWEEN THE LINES … it’s about a prince who wants to break free from his fairytale existence … and the girl who falls for him while she’s reading. It’s sweet and romantic and funny — and to celebrate, we’re going out for ribs!!”
According to The Book Case, the mother-daughter duo will tour to promote the title. Picoult is not the first writer to partner with her daughter on a writing project.
Singer/writer Julie Andrews has collaborated on several books with her daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton. Earlier this year, the audiobook version of their title Julie Andrews’ Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies won the Grammy Award in the Best Spoken Word Album For Children category. Children’s author Jane Yolen has also co-written several picture books with her daughter, Heidi E. Y. Stemple.
