"Quirky, charming, funny, sad: another winner from this always-surprising author." Kirkus

"Perfectly strange ... Jaclyn Moriarty is one of the most original writers we have." Markus Zusak

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?

Cute for nostalgia

I loved this book when I read it in early high school and it's one of those stories that stayed with me for years. Rereading it, the dialogue is quirky and makes for a fun read that brings me back to being 15 again. Perfect for early teens or fans of teen fantasy romance.
