I really just want to hug every single part of fiber of the book.
This book can be explained in one word: QUIRKY.
A Corner of White is quirky, fun, funny, emotional, and something all on its own. And in a way, it shines every color in the world.
- Our world.
- This is where Madeline lives.
- She lives Cambridge where the only colour she seems to see are grey and dull.
Madeline herself was just too colorful for Cambridge, England. She finds a letter corresponding from a person. Of course she thinks it's from some fantasy-obsessed boy. But playing along doesn't hurt. ; D
The Kingdom of Cello
- A parallel world.
- This is where Elliot lives.
- He lives in Bonfire where the only color he seems to see are Colors that attack you.
Elliot likes in the Bonfire, Farms. Where everyone knows everyone and seems like one of those warmly open towns. He finds a slip of letter in an artwork made by his friend. Nope, he is not a fantasy-obsessed boy. He just lives in The Kingdom of Cello.
My oh my can I say so much about this book! Jaclyn Moriarty just has a way where she has so many things happening at the same time and they don't get jumbled up at all. Can I say that Moriarty just--it's just not her story without some kind of letter or newspaper or extra little spice she always add to her stories. Why do you make me want to have a pen pal around my age and is a boy all the time, Moriarty?! DX Somehow this book felt so, so, so... something very hard to explain. If you have to ask me how/why, I would say, "Read it, and you'll know".
Moriarty has a way with building Cello. Adding on all these layers and layers of this world, I felt like I was there.
> _ < Just take me to Cello. Please.
"The question is wrong. Correct question: Why would you not visit Cello?"
