A Corner of White
Written by Jaclyn Moriarty
The first in a rousing, funny, genre-busting trilogy from bestseller Jaclyn Moriarty, now in paperback!
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. Can a stranger from another world help you solve the problems in your own? And can Madeleine and Elliot find the missing pieces of themselves before it's too late?
