Jodi Picoult: "I was on a book tour in Los Angeles when my telephone rang. 'Mom,' my daughter, Sammy, said. 'I think I have a pretty good idea for a book.'"
First Line: "Once upon a time in a land far, far away there lived a brave king and a beautiful queen, who were so much in love that wherever they went, people stopped what they were doing just to watch them pass."
So starts the entertaining young adult book written by Jodi Picoult and her teenage daughter, Samantha Van Leer.
