I had a bit of trouble at first, because Elliot in the Kingdom of Cello seems so much more realistic, more probably than Madeline in Cambridge. The differing story lines and perspectives weren't a problem, just how much more concrete Elliot's life was than hers.And then there are complications, and things start getting more real for Madeline and more fantastic for Elliot, and then it really got gripping. Lots of assumptions turning back on themselves multiple times: I love that.I'm really looking forward to however many others there are in the series, now that the two worlds are properly established. As I recall, I enjoyed each of the Ashbury series a great deal [b:Feeling Sorry for Celia|82783|Feeling Sorry for Celia (Ashbury/Brookfield, #1)|Jaclyn Moriarty|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1312026150s/82783.jpg|1013926], [b:The Year of Secret Assignments|82780|The Year of Secret Assignments (Ashbury/Brookfield, #2)|Jaclyn Moriarty|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1346939645s/82780.jpg|2161186], [b:The Murder Of Bindy Mackenzie|82781|The Murder Of Bindy Mackenzie (Ashbury/Brookfield, #3)|Jaclyn Moriarty|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1360058324s/82781.jpg|1006125], [b:The Ghosts of Ashbury High|7097618|The Ghosts of Ashbury High (Ashbury/Brookfield, #4)|Jaclyn Moriarty|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1275882125s/7097618.jpg|7355014].
