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.
I haven’t read that many books in september, considering that 4 of the 9 books were short stories… And only 1 review is kinda sad, but nonetheless it was an awesome book month.
I finally read the first Harry Potter (through force by my awesome Pottertwin; Em :D) Of course I love it, so I should thank her! And yes, I’m planning to read the other books as soon as I get my hands on them.
Splintered was amazing! One of the best books I read so far. Just fantastic!
