Publisher's Summary

It all came down to me.

The one who followed the rules, never went looking for trouble - I kept to myself. I just wanted to take care of my family. To not constantly look over my shoulder, worried about the things that went bump in the night.

I just wanted to survive. But that wasn't meant to be.

As luck - or fate, or something - would have it, the trouble found me.

I followed a rabbit through the wreckage of a half-ruined world to get back what was mine, and wound up at the end of it.

In Wonderland. But there's nothing magical about it.

Contains mature themes.

Christina C. Jones really surprised me with this creatively modern spin on Alice In Wonderland! I loved the adult and futuristic twist to this enemies to lovers relationship centered around African Americans and only wish fairytales of this nature were always inclusive to “us” before now! Wesleigh Siobhan’s narrating was spectacular and Sean Crisden did not disappoint with his narration either!! My only issue was that Sean didn’t narrate enough of the audiobook. I loved how this version was so relatable to issues everyone currently face, such as self esteem, bullying, lost loves, and the importance of family and acceptance. Great listen!

Two Thumbs Up!!!

I loved this book! The narration was top notch, and the storyline was awesome. An excellent adaptation of Alice In Wonderland, but with an urban, grown-folk, post-apocalyptic twist that touches on many societal issues of our time. Kudos Christina C. Jones!!! Now can we please get a part Two?!

Wonder-ful!!!

I absolutely loved this book. The characters were strong, well developed and all added to the fabric of the story. In these times of unrest, happy endings are still possible.

Loved it

I loved how this book was a different take on Alice in wonderland. The people, the actual environment, it was really intriguing to follow Bunny down the rabbit hole, so to speak. I’m definitely going to check her other work out.

Sooo Refreshing!!

It is so cool to read a futuristic story from the mind of a black author. It is truly amazing to be able to read about and envision a post-apocalyptic world where black people are not just surviving, but thriving on their own terms. There is literally nothing that I don’t love about this book or it’s characters. You won’t be disappointed.
