Add it to Goodreads
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.

Elliot begins to write to Madeleine, the Girl-in-the-World - a most dangerous thing to do for suspected cracks must be reported and closed.

But Elliot's father has disappeared and Madeleine's mother is sick. Can a stranger from another world help to unravel the mysteries in your own? Can Madeleine and Elliot find the missing pieces of themselves before it is too late?

A mesmerising story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them.

why i chose it

A Corner of White was actually book-pushed onto me by my mum. She saw it at Big W, and really liked the cover so she bought it. And then fell in love with it. Only when the third book, A Tangle of Gold, was about to be released did I finally read A Corner of White

I ended up absolutely loving it. Which just goes to show you should listen to your mother *laughs* A Corner of White was magical, and beautiful, and all kinds of those really lovely adjectives. I adored every single character, most of all Elliot Baranski, who is my precious cinnamon child and needs to be protected.

A Corner of White is incredibly unique and whimsical, which works for some people and not for others. For me, I just went with it and ended up loving it. The sequel was even more to my tastes, and it actually a favourite book!

If you're looking for a new (and finished!) series to add to your TBR don't hesitate to start this one.
