Each chapter of this novel alternates between Our World and Cello with the third person narration of Jack and Madeleine or Elliot and the Sheriff of Cello.

Books by Jaclyn Moriarty. The book is absolutely charming, quirky, fun and most importantly very nicely written. This moruarty where Madeleine Tully lives with her mother, who seems to be losing her mind.

So, how does the whole Color thing work? Her fascination with colours the model on the cover morizrty Madeleine in a scene connects her to Elliot.

A Corner of White

I really loved the ideas of colours being more than just colours and it was so easy to picture these attacks of colour. The more I returned to that old story, the more the whimsical brilliance seemed to dim and be replaced with a random series of bizarre occurrences without any sense to them whatsoever. He searches high and low in the Kingdom of Cello hoping t. Madeleine, on the other hand, is fragmented. If you know anything at all about Jaclyn Griet, you will probably know she is a genius when it comes to crafting epistolary narratives, specially the way that those relates to the plot and the characters.

She ran away from home and oa mother came with her. She’d talked like the rainfall.

I am already looking forward to the sequel, and am eager to explore the world of Cello. There are two theories in town and Jack is convinced that his father and the teacher were taken by a Purple.

There is no substance to this book. She currently lives in Sydney.

I really liked the characters that Jaclyn has created here. And I’ll do precisely that as soon as I can.

Yet, what makes A Corner of White such a special novel are the characters themselves. It’s zany, it’s imaginative it’s comical and it is completely unique to her. In Cello, a parallel world, Elliot has just returned from another fruitless search for his father.
