9780545397360: A Corner of White (The Colors of Madeleine, Book 1): Book 1 of The Colors of Madeleine

This is a tale of missing persons. Madeleine and her mother have run away from their former life, under mysterious circumstances, and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge (in our world).

Elliot, on the other hand, is in search of his father, who disappeared on the night his uncle was found dead. The talk in the town of Bonfire (in the Kingdom of Cello) is that Elliot's dad may have killed his brother 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. But even greater mysteries are unfolding on both sides of the gap: dangerous weather phenomena called "color storms;" a strange fascination with Isaac Newton; the myth of the "Butterfly Child," whose appearance could end the droughts of Cello; and some unexpected kisses...

About the Author:

Jaclyn Moriarty grew up in Sydney, Australia, with four sisters (including author Liane Moriarty), one brother, two dogs, and twelve chickens. She studied law at the University of Sydney, Yale, and Cambridge, and worked as an entertainment lawyer before she wrote the Ashbury High novels, including The Year of Secret Assignments, The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie, and The Ghosts of Ashbury High. She still lives in Sydney, with her little boy, Charlie.

Review:

"Another one of a kind from the inimitable Moriarty, this time, a barely epistolary fantasy series opener unlike anything else out there Quirky, charming, funny, sad: another winner from this always-surprising author.” -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Moriarty is the queen of epistolary stories, and her fans will find the teens' letters a familiar entrée into this highly unusual fantasy As always, her irresistible characters help readers navigate a tantalizingly complex plot that will leave them eagerly awaiting the next book.” -- Horn Book, starred review

Lovely fantasy The story is told through the teens' communications and an omniscient narrator. This mix allows readers to know Madeleine and Elliot and their problems intimately, but it also gives them an aerial view of events, helps them meet the richly drawn secondary characters, and allows them to see the ingenious way in which the protagonists' lives ultimately combine.” -- School Library Journal, starred review

[A] genre-blending feat of stylistic energy Give this to readers who, like Madeleine, aren't quite sure of their commitment to secondary worlds but like to spice their realities with a little fantasy nonetheless, as well as to those who love secondary worlds with a healthy helping of reality on the side.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

Moriarty's marvelously original fantasy is quirky, clever, and delightful . Expect readers to flock to Moriarty's name and stay for the whole Colors of Madeleine trilogy.” -- Booklist

[M]oments of sharp observation, startling invention, and delightfully comic dialogue confirm Moriarty as a genre-bending author who gracefully weaves metaphysical questions into outwardly ordinary circumstances.” -- Publishers Weekly

[A] clever, layered story in which every seemingly innocuous detail plays a part, and the ending satisfies while opening brand-new doors for the sequel.” -- Voice of Youth Advocates
