Giveaway: A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty

A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty
April 1st, 2013 from Arthur A. Levine (Scholastic)

A tale of two worlds, told in brilliant color.

Readers have loved bestselling author Jaclyn Moriarty since The Year of Secret Assignments. Now she gives them A Corner of White, the first in a suspenseful, funny, genre-busting trilogy that brings her fantastic characters, laugh-out-loud descriptions, and brilliant plotting to a fantasy setting.

Madeleine and her mother have run away from their former life and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge, England (in our world).

In another world, in the Kingdom of Cello, Elliot is in search of his father, who disappeared on the night his uncle Jon was found dead. The talk in the town is that Elliot's dad may have killed Jon and run away with the physics teacher. But Elliot refuses to believe it. And he is determined to find both his dad and the truth.

As Madeleine and Elliot move closer to unraveling their mysteries, they begin to exchange messages across worlds — through an accidental gap that hasn't appeared in centuries. On both sides of the gap, even greater mysteries are unfolding — with more than one life at stake.

  8. I'm so excited for this book :) I just love the concept of it :D

  9. This looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for the review.

  10. The thing about meaningful sayings is that it usually only truly meaningful to those who want it to be. Individual stripes and everything. Otherwise, grey is a fantastically neutral color that never needs worrying about being too blindingly harsh or funereal.

  11. So excited that there is this new book coming out. It looks like a ton of fun!

  12. Love the book ends and the concept behind this book.

  13. Moriarty's one of my favorite YA authors; I love her letters-notes-email-kitchen sink format.

  14. I haven't read any of Moriarty's books yet and just got this one from NetGalley. It's definitely a unique read and the farther I get the more I like it. :) Thanks for the giveaway!
