I loved it! Fairy tale reimaginings are one of my favorite things to read, and this was an extremely nice treat. Can't wait to see more from her.

This re telling of the fairy tale Alice In Wonderland is amazing it was almost as good as the original. The use of descriptive language in the book is well used and adds to the plot.

Splintered is a story with a twisted version of Wonderland. Alyssa Gardner must solve the mystery and break the curse behind her family's past occurrences in Wonderland. Love this book! It was similar to fairy tale re-tellings, but with a darker, creepier twist. Would definitely recommend it!

NYPL Staff Picks
The history of mental illness in Alyssa's family dates back to her great-great-great grandmother Alice who once told Lewis Carroll about a place called Wonderland.
