"Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at “Breaking the Spine”, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My Pick this Week!
Author: A.G. Howard
Publisher: Amulet Books
Release Date: January 1, 2013
For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell -- the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers ... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.
When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.
There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.(Goodreads)
Why I’m Waiting
Um really, after seeing that cover and reading that blurb… Aren't you wanting this just as much as me? I hate the fact that I have to wait till January for this:(
I have always loved the story of Alice in wonderland! I have even read it with my children. I think incorporating this version of new with the original is going to be a lot of fun. I all kinds of want this now!!!
What are you waiting on?
