Description on Goodreads:

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. 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 takes a turn for the 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. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

Review:

Okay. OKAY. LET ME SAY THAT HOLY MONKEYS EATING CORN MUFFINS I LOVE THIS BOOK.

I am going to be spoiler free, but GOOD GOD. The characters are deep, the writing is like beautiful art and just… /Morpheus/.

The way that it all falls together is like paint on a canvas, so delicately placed… so vivid and pulling. I found it so hard to put down this book at ANY point. And I have ADHD.

Even while reading another book, THIS was always on my mind. I found myself needing it more and more. Now, I am waiting for the first to get the Novella. BECAUSE I NEED IT. I own Unhinged, and I plan on buying Ensnared.

The author herself is even a grand example of someone who, even if I didn’t end up becoming friends with; would be on my BUY IMMEDIATLEY list. One of my top authors.

Her world is like a fine wine, to be savored and enjoyed.

And I, would love to live in her dark wonderland.

With Morpheus.

My Mothman.

 

My Rating: 5/5
