Waiting on Wednesday for A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty

Australian Cover

USA Cover

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 mesmerizing story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them. (from Goodreads)

I added A Corner of White to my Goodreads list back in December 2012, before it had a cover, or a synopsis, or even a title. 

Now it has all three, as well as a blurb from Markus Zusak ‘Perfectly strange, and absolutely comical and heartfelt ... Jaclyn Moriarty is one of the most original writers we have.’   

Jaclyn Moriarty is one of my favourite authors and I can't wait to read this one. I'm so excited I already have the Australian edition ordered from FishPond World. Although I may have to buy the US one when it comes out, as I think I love that cover most.

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What are you waiting for?
