Jaclyn Moriarty's "The Cracks in the Kingdom"

Jaclyn Moriarty grew up in Sydney, Australia, with 4 sisters, 1 brother, 2 dogs, and 12 chickens. She studied law at the University of Sydney, Yale, and Cambridge, and worked as an entertainment lawyer before she wrote the Ashbury High novels, including The Year of Secret Assignments, The Murder of Bindy Mackenzie, and The Ghosts of Ashbury High.

Here Moriarty dreamcats an adaptation of The Cracks in the Kingdom, the second novel in The Colors of Madeleine series:
There are plenty of characters in The Cracks in the Kingdom so I think there is room for all of my favourite actors. I love Frances McDormand, Rebecca Pidgeon, Lauren Graham, Meryl Streep, Laura Linney and Mark Ruffalo and I think they should all live in the farming town of Bonfire in the Kingdom of Cello. Mark Ruffalo could play Deputy Sheriff Jimmy. I think George Clooney should be the King of Cello. Jennifer Lawrence could be Princess Ko. Matt Damon could be the computer guy downstairs in Cambridge, England. Or he could play anyone he likes. Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling are also welcome to any roles they like. I could go on.
