“The normality is subjective, so do not let anyone tell you that you are not normal, because for me you are, and this is the only opinion that has to be important for you”
Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.
When her mother’s mental health turns worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on, and is waiting for Alyssa to fix the mess that the young Alice committed on her first visit and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, whom she has been dreaming since childhood.
A story with the macabre touch of Tim Burton and the genius of Carroll. Our author A.G. Howard has known how to take a world and transform it into something never seen, letting us know her version of the future of those characters that are so well known. If you are a true fan of Alicia you cannot miss this story, and if you aren’t then I encourage you to delve into this world and know a new version of what you already knew. You will be as lost and crazy as the protagonist.
