Waiting on Wednesday for A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty
Madeleine Tully lives in Cambridge, England, the World – a city of spires, Isaac Newton and Auntie’s Tea Shop.
Elliot Baranski lives in Bonfire, the Farms, the Kingdom of Cello – where seasons roam, the Butterfly Child sleeps in a glass jar, and bells warn of attacks from dangerous Colours.
They are worlds apart – until a crack opens up between them; a corner of white – the slim seam of a letter.
A mesmerizing story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them. (from Goodreads)
I added A Corner of White to my Goodreads list back in December 2012, before it had a cover, or a synopsis, or even a title.
Now it has all three, as well as a blurb from Markus Zusak ‘Perfectly strange, and absolutely comical and heartfelt … Jaclyn Moriarty is one of the most original writers we have.’
Jaclyn Moriarty is one of my favourite authors and I can’t wait to read this one. I’m so excited I already have the Australian edition ordered from FishPond World. Although I may have to buy the US one when it comes out, as I think I love that cover most.
