Publisher's Summary

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of Underland, 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.

    "Enjoyable take on Alice in Wonderland"

    Splintered offered a fun, romantic take on Alice in Wonderland. The characters were uniquely adapted to fit into the original ideas, but stood alone as there own developed identities. A little too much romantic "dilemma" for my taste, however, that being said, I really did enjoy this book.

    "Really Twisted"

    GREAT Narration of this book. There seems to be so many new Alice in Wonderland stories, but this one is refreshingly dark and hauntingly enchanting.
    Rebecca Gibel did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life and I could not imagine anyone else narrating these books!

    "Not Bad"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I will go beyond this first in the series. It's a bit twisted, but overall easy on the ears.

    "great for a light hearted read"

    This story had a new twist on a great classic. It was whimsical and fun. The only cliche that somewhat tugged at my annoyance was the ever present good boy vs bad boy conflict for the teenage heroine. Overall it was enjoyable.

    "Young adult fantasy fiction with confusing plot."

    Excellent narration. Teen angst and raging hormones. Confusing plot due to lack of back story.

    "Interesting Twist to a Classic"

    I'm a super fan of anything Alice in Wonderland related and I'm in love with this series. The author did an exceptional job of creating a new adventure with a herione with a surprising heritage. Great YA fiction to satisfy your imagination.

    Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.

    Story
    "Splintered Left me with only minor scars"

    This book was okay, but the main character was such a meal and mild girl, that when she did do something extraordinary it was out of character. The voice of the reader I think was perfect for this mild manner little frumpy girl, but her stern side is laughable and leaves no impression.

    "Excellent listening."

    This was an excellent listen, though too erotic for young children. Young adult audience only.

    "Mover over Alice in Wonderland !"

    This kept my attention from the beginning . There is nothing that could possibly be changed that could make it any better.

    Story
    "I love Lewis Carroll remakes but..."

    I struggled to finish this. The protagonist is a helpless obnoxious girl, her suitors are ridiculous, and the love triangle theme came from the same boring formula from which all boring love triangle themes come; this theme is overdone, stale, and predictable, just like the story. I wanted to like this and I like the idea of a dark Alice in Wonderland, but this story bored me nearly to death whilst the character development made me puke a little in my mouth.
