Um what…JACLYN MORIARTY WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME?!!! WHY OH MY GOD MY HEART AND I JUST MY LIFE SUCKS RIGHT NOW UGH AUTHORS ARE EVIL.

Picking up from the first book, Princess Ko is in need of getting her family back before doom will fall on the Kingdom of Cello. In order to do so, she makes the Royal Youth Alliance, gathering young adolescents, to help her. That's the basic plot going on. But there is also Elliot and his missing father and Madeline and her world. And also they try to cross over to each other's world….

Okay, this is going to be so hard but I am going to make this spoiler-free. It's so hard not to tell you what happens and I just want to and ADFJKALF--yeah. GIVE ME THE NEXT BOOK ALREADY!

I swear Elliot and Madeline yes they need to kiss and make babies together--they are so adorable together and I love how comforting they feel in each others' presences. And they just so perfect they are my OTP all the way. I'm shipping this boat all the way.

Lots of things are still unanswered about the cracks but you get loads more information about them and as ever the surprises just kept on coming and I loved it! You get a bit more like how you can pass through cracks or what happens when people in Cello go to the World (our world). You also get to see more of Cello!

I loved that even though there is all these things happening, Moriarty still manages to make it  a heartwarming, funny, and emotional read. My heart right now…it's in pieces.

Now excuse me while I squeeze lemon on my elbow and see if I'm from Cello.

  1. I know I commented on GR, but I enjoy stalking your blog.XD Can we talk about how different the girls on the covers look. If you put people on covers stick to the same people. I'm excited for this one and every time I look at your review my excitement escalates. Do you know if this is a trilogy? I think I saw that it was.
