Before there was an Alice, there was a Queen of Hearts. And before there was a Queen of Hearts, there was a girl who lost all heart. This is her story. Katy has spent the first twelve years of her life wishing time away. Until she finds herself sucked in a world completely out of time, a literal wonderland bursting with wild magic, beauty and technicolor dreams come to life. But this land also surges with an undercurrent of poisonous spells, dark forests, and deep evil. A place one could quite literally lose her head. It's a world at once familiar yet radically distinct. Wonderland before Alice first arrived. A place where the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter roam alongside creatures such as a snake named Waith and a stuttering lizard known as Lutwidge. Katy never asked to be there - or for the life-or-death adventure she finds herself in. Yet in a kingdom where almost anything can happen, Katy must somehow awaken the one thing that's impossible for her to live with or without...her heart.
I love this book so much, I’ve listen to it multiple times. I wish it could go on forever. The way she writes the story up to the part we already know makes it so intriguing, how all the pieces fit together astounds me. I love this back story to the queen of hearts and it will forever be the true back story in my mind. I laughed, I cried, I loved it.
