New Book A Corner of White and Kate Spade Umbrella Giveaway

As many of you know, I love a good book.  I am always trying to find time to read and this new book like Jaclyn Moriarty looks like it will be a great read.  You can check out Jaclyn Moriarty’s Official Site.  The Colors of Madeleine: A Corner of White will be available in stores on April 1, 2013.  But, I have a little sneak peak for you and and an awesome giveaway. 🙂


About A Corner of White

A tale of two worlds, told in brilliant color.

Readers have loved bestselling author Jaclyn Moriarty since The Year of Secret Assignments. Now she gives them A Corner of White, the first in a suspenseful, funny, genre-busting trilogy that brings her fantastic characters, laugh-out-loud descriptions, and brilliant plotting to a fantasy setting.

Madeleine and her mother have run away from their former life and settled in a rainy corner of Cambridge, England (in our world).

In another world, in the Kingdom of Cello, Elliot is in search of his father, who disappeared on the night his uncle Jon was found dead. The talk in the town is that Elliot’s dad may have killed Jon 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. On both sides of the gap, even greater mysteries are unfolding — with more than one life at stake.
