"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
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.'
