Publisher Description

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.

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.

I bought this audiobook on a whim because I’d found an old gift card. I was intrigued, and by no means disappointed. Unique plot and a completely fascinating take on the original tale, I LOVE this story. The characters are relatable, but whimsical to every stretch of the imagination. Romance, mystery, and even a little scary at times, I strongly suggest this to anyone with a thirst for adventure!

The narrator was fantastic in my view, she tackled male voices incredibly well for being female. Bravo!

Audiobooks, typical hit or miss

This narrator doesn't pronounce 'Liddell' correctly (for the entire book.) It's nit-picking but I'm an "Alice in Wonderland" fan so it really bothered me.
