Teen Book Battle: A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty versus The Girl Who Never Was by Skylar Dorset

A Corner of White

A Corner of White

In “A Corner of White” by Jaclyn Moriarty we encounter Madeleine, who has run away from home seventeen times. This last time was different though because this time her Mother came with her!  Together they start a new, secret life altogether different from the one they left behind. While her mother is busy sewing day and night to make money, Madeleine explores her new neighborhood. She discovers a piece of paper  sticking out of a parking meter that says “Help Me! I am being held against my will!” and begins exchanging letters there with a boy who claims to be from the Kindgdom of Cello.

The Girl Who Never Was

The Girl Who Never Was

Selkie Stewart lives with her two strange, old aunts and the only thing she knows about her parents is that one night her father came home to find a beautiful woman asleep on his couch and nine months later Selkie was left on his doorstep.  Shortly after that, her Father was committed to a psychiatric hospital.  Determined to find out just who her Mother really is, Selkie accidentally opens up a world she never knew existed.  Now her whole life is revealed as a lie.  Will she remain a girl-in-the-world or become part of the Seelie Court?

Both of theses books were well written and the plots were intriguing.  Of the two, however, Jaclyn Moriarty’s held the most appeal to me.  Perhaps, that’s because it seems to me that the notion of discovering  someone else is from an enchanted kingdom is more likely than finding out that you yourself  are “a princess in disguise”!
