In the book Read Between the Lines a group of teenagers have very different lives and in order to understand each other they need to “read between the lines.” These kids are in their own world dealing with their own problems and little do others know they have problems in their “perfect” worlds.
The characters are Nate (a loser who broke his middle finger), Claire (a popular cheerleader who’s looking for something more than popularity and the daily gossip), Lacy ( a “big” girl who questions her popularity as a big girl), and Keith (the jock who befriends a nerd with a broken middle finger.)
All these people’s lives are somehow linked together in a special and awakening way. For example, Claire and Keith are walking in the streets not together but they find each other in an awesome way that makes them see things more clearly.
I feel that this book connects to people everywhere in different ways. Some people want popularity and others don’t think it’s so great. They don’t feel that anyone understands and this book is a way for them not to feel alone.
