Waiting on Wednesday: 'A Corner of White'

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming release that we're eagerly anticipating.


TITLE: 'A Corner of White', first book in new series 'The Colors of Madeleine'

AUTHOR: Jaclyn Moriarty

RELEASE DATE: October 2012

BLURB: 

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 mesmerising story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them.

Why am I so excited for this book (apart from the fact that Moriarty's 'Ashbury/Brookfield' series was fantastic)? Check out what Markus Zusak has to say about it:

'Perfectly strange, and absolutely comical and heartfelt... Jaclyn Moriarty is one of the most original writers we have.'
