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.

Let me start by saying, this was the first audiobook I have ever listened to. I was a little skeptical at first, since I am your typical Barnes and Noble, old-book smell kind of girl, but this story was fantastic! If you are any fan of Alice in Wonderland or just fairy tales in general, you will love this book! There were plenty of twists and turns to keep any reader satisfied. It was heart-warming and highly original. I wanted to laugh out loud at certain points and cry at others. Overall, this was a charming book that will make you want to fall down the rabbit hole and into the chaos that is Wonderland!
