A CORNER OF WHITE, by Jaclyn Moriarty

corner of white

The story: Madeleine and Elliot live in different worlds–literally. She lives in England; he lives in an alternative dimension in a place called the Kingdom of Cello. The two worlds are connected by a crack…in a parking meter. Madeleine starts out disbelieving that anything Elliot says about his world is true–but ends up believing he can save her mother’s life. The only problem–will he be able to do it in time?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I ended up really liking this story, but you’ll have to be patient in order to see when and how the two worlds will connect up and then start influencing each other. This one is for girls only–boys will pretty much want to give it a skip.
