This week I'm wishing for...
Summary from Amazon:
"This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, 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."
Why I'm Wishing for It:
I have yet to hear a bad word about this book. I've seen heaps of reviews for this and not one negative thing has been said. Plus, this is a retelling of the classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and at the moment I am obsessed with books that take classic stories and add a twist to them, and this twist just sounds so damn interesting! Hopefully I can get my hands on this soon.
What about you? What are you wishing for this week?
