Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell—the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.
When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.
There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.
Coming out on January, 2013
- Who doesn't like Alice in Wonderland? Better yet, who wouldn't like to discover that the story of Alice is more than true, and her descendants are living with that knowledge?
- Sounds like a cute way to introduce those who haven't actually read Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
- I think that the title is interesting. Could it possibly mean the splintering of reality, splintering of sanity, or the splintering of a mirror? So many plays on that title.
- It is such an interesting cover. I can't exactly say that it is a beautiful cover, but it definitely catches your attention with all the things crowding around it.
So what are you waiting for?
