Review: In this first novel in a series, Madeleine and Elliot are able to communicate via letter between their parallel worlds - one in the UK and one in the Farms of Cello - through a “gap.” The complex characters represent dimensions of fantasy and real life traits, although reversed, as if Cello may be the real fairyland. Their bond develops as they both must work through the absences of their fathers and figure out their place in their worlds. Plot twists come from unusual Cellian phenomena - rogue Colors presenting as evil dangerous creatures which attack citizens - and family challenges with which the reader can relate. Actual reading level is late-intermediate, but interest level and topic put this title in the senior high category.
