The Cracks in the Kingdom

Jaclyn Moriarty

In this lively follow-up to A Corner of White (2013), Moriarty chronicles the lives of Elliot, in the Kingdom of Cello, and Madeleine, a homeschooled teen who lives in Cambridge with her childlike mother. They continue to communicate through letters they send through a "crack" between their two worlds. Elliot is more determined than ever to find his missing father. He gets sidetracked when the ruthless Princess Ko recruits him to help her find the royal family who may be trapped in Madeleine's world. The stakes are high as Elliot and Madeleine must find a way to travel across worlds and bring missing loved ones home.
