Best-selling author Jaclyn Moriarty has done it again! Her latest book, A Corner of White is set to be released this April Fool’s Day, but it’s no joke. The novel is attention-grabbing and captivating in all the best ways. Moriarty has a great talent for storytelling and gets you involved in each and every character, no matter how big or small a role they may play. The book is the perfect blend of fantasy and real life and is the kind of story that you pick up and almost immediately get lost in. I’m not kidding when I say I almost missed my stop on the train home (well, it was the last stop but I do have to catch a connecting train, so it could’ve been bad) because I was so wrapped up in the book.
(Yes, I instagrammed a pic of me reading it on the train. Don’t judge.)
I don’t want to reveal any major plot points or give anything away, so no spoilers here. The only thing that makes me sad is that it’s part of a series. Which means I have to wait for more books to come out. I get really impatient when it comes to waiting for new books. Nerd status, I know. But, if it makes you more excited about this giveaway/book release, I’m also really picky about books. And I really, really enjoyed A Corner of White.
About A Corner of White
A tale of two worlds, told in brilliant color. Readers have loved bestselling author Jaclyn Moriarty since The Year of Secret Assignments. Now she gives them A Corner of White, the first in a suspenseful, funny, genre-busting trilogy that brings her fantastic characters, laugh-out-loud descriptions, and brilliant plotting to a fantasy setting. Madeleine and her mother have run away from their former life and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge, England (in our world). In another world, in the Kingdom of Cello, Elliot is in search of his father, who disappeared on the night his uncle Jon was found dead. The talk in the town is that Elliot’s dad may have killed Jon 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. On both sides of the gap, even greater mysteries are unfolding — with more than one life at stake.
