” We are all mad here, Alice.” I was thoroughly enthralled with this book. I didn’t want to put it down due to wanting to know what Alice was up to next. I was transported into a lunatic asylum where Alice Wonder is a patient. She is kept in a cell underground where her only friend is a potted Tiger Lily flower and she avoids mirrors due to seeing a rabbit in them. What got Alice admitted in the first place? Well lets just say she has hallucinations about the Wonderland Monsters. I can’t say much more without spoiling the book, but the true adventure begins when she meets with a hooka smoking patient that sets her on her true course. I can honestly say that is the best book I have read by this author so far! I can’t wait to read the next book to this series. I love twisted fairy tales.
After accidentally killing everyone in her class, Alice Wonder is now a patient in the Radcliffe Lunatic Asylum. No one doubts her insanity. Only a hookah-smoking professor believes otherwise; that he can prove her sanity by decoding Lewis Carroll’s paintings, photographs, and find Wonderland’s real whereabouts. Professor Caterpillar persuades the asylum that Alice can save lives and catch the wonderland monsters now reincarnated in modern day criminals. In order to do so, Alice leads a double life: an Oxford university student by day, a mad girl in an asylum by night. The line between sanity and insanity thins when she meets Jack Diamond, an arrogant college student who believes that nonsense is an actual science.
