From Goodreads

The first in a rousing, funny, genre-busting trilogy from bestseller Jaclyn Moriarty!

This is a tale of missing persons. Madeleine and her mother have run away from their former life, under mysterious circumstances, and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge (in our world).

Elliot, on the other hand, is in search of his father, who disappeared on the night his uncle was found dead. The talk in the town of Bonfire (in the Kingdom of Cello) is that Elliot’s dad may have killed his brother 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. But even greater mysteries are unfolding on both sides of the gap: dangerous weather phenomena called “color storms;” a strange fascination with Isaac Newton; the myth of the “Butterfly Child,” whose appearance could end the droughts of Cello; and some unexpected kisses..

Reasons Why I Desperately Want to Get My Hands On This Book: 
1. Jaclyn Moriarty! I LOVED The Year of Secret Assignments and Feeling Sorry for Celia, and it sounds like she has some fun stuff going with secret messages in this one, too. 
2. Our world/their world – feels like a Pullman novel to me. 
3. PHYSICS! I’m such a nerd, I love it when YA books include awesome physics stuff. See point 2 about Pullman. 
4. That cover…so cute. And I love the whole colo(u)r storm thing. 
I may have to see if I can get someone to bring this to me from Australia. =)

  1. I am new to Jaclyn Moriarty, but I am glad that is no longer the case. This sounds like a great read! And I adore the cover. Too cute. And I love secret messages, anywhere, anytime. Between worlds! And unexpected smooches! Doesn't seem to me like you could go wrong with Corner of White!
