Jaclyn Moriarty is an award winning author who writes best-selling novels for young adult and adult audiences. Her debut novel Feeling Sorry For Celia won the NSW Premier’s Literary Award and the American Librarian Association has named her books among the Best Books for Young Adults.
I have just read the blurb for the new Jaclyn Moriarty book due for release on September 18th and I am excited as well as intrigued, this is shaping up to be a must read for 2012.
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 mesmerising story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them.
A novel that promises to be evocative, poetic and simply extraordinary. And the best bit – this is the first book in the Colours of Madeleine trilogy so this is just the beginning!
We were even lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the cover quote:
‘Perfectly strange, and absolutely comical and heartfelt … Jaclyn Moriarty is one of the most original writers we have.’ – Markus Zusak
Jaclyn Moriarty is not an author I have come in contact with previously but combining this information with the glorious cover I’m revealing – I think that’s a stellar first impression that requires definite investigation.
Bring on September 18th!
If A Corner of White lives up to even half its promise then we are in for a worldly treat.
Publication Date: 18 September, 2012
