Fourteen year old Madeleine and
her mother are now living in a small flat in Cambridge, England
after leaving their old life behind. They are now
living in poverty and having to adjust to a brand new
lifestyle rather than the life of luxury they are used
to. Madeleine meets Elliot
when she sees him put a letter into a crack in a
sort of lives in the same place. Well, he
actually lives in the Kingdom of Cello which is
an alternate place.
People have stopped traveling between Cambridge
and Cello a very long time ago but Elliot has discovered
a small crack between the two worlds that allows him to
correspond with Madeleine.
The two strike up a friendship but Madeleine
thinks all the talk about Cello is some wonderful
imaginary fairy tale that Elliot has made up. But through
the letters, the two begin to understand that by helping
each other, their own worlds make more sense.
