Series: The Colors of Madeleine # 1
Published by Arthur A Levine Books on April 1, 2013
The first in a rousing, funny, genre-busting trilogy from bestseller Jaclyn Moriarty!
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...
Welcome to another round of “Fun With Limericks,” a (hopefully) fun way of dealing with books I didn’t finish, or I finished, but for whatever reason, I felt I could not write a proper review. So, I’ve done the most logical thing possible, and I’ve decided to write a limerick to express my thoughts on A Corner of White. A Corner of White was a rare DNF for me. I tried, I really did. I read 50%, and while it wasn’t bad, I just couldn’t connect to it at all. Without further ado…
