A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty

Madeline, 14, lives in an attic flat in Cambridge and is dealing with sudden (comparative) poverty and her mother’s odd breaks with reality. Elliot, 15, lives in the kingdom of Cello, a world which could seem almost unbearably pleasant and small-town and kind except for its very weird and color-filled edges—colors attack, seasons roam unpredictably. The two teenagers communicate between their worlds. Isaac Newton, color theory, and the laws of physics, of course, are epistolarily discussed as Elliot inserts a letter into a crack in a concrete sculpture on the school grounds in Cello and Madeline sees the corner of white poking out from the foot of a parking meter in Cambridge. Clever, quirky, charming, comic, sad—you know the list, but this is unlike anything else out there. Grades 7–11.
