Absolutely loved this story, at a time where there are a lot of retellings happening, A.G. Howard does a different take, and instead does a "what happened after" type of story. It's twisted and yet feels so real. Definitely a great read!

It's dark and twisted. In a way it reminds me of the game Alice In Wonderland: Madness Returns. It has similar story lines except in the game Alice has gone mad. I think people should definitely read this. It's amazing.

A twisted, wild romp through Wonderland, featuring familiar but terrifyingly different characters from the beloved original. Recommended especially for goth, skater or literary teens.

I'm a fan of just about any spin on 'Alice in Wonderland', but I especially loved how this author took it to almost a Stephen King level. It's an interpretation I hadn't read before, and I really enjoyed it. It's kind of gory and gross, and some of it is pretty twisted, but it's just the kind of story I enjoy.
