Alice in Wonderland??

Splintered (Splintered, #1)


By: A. G. Howard

Genre: YA Fantasy

Pages: 371

Published: 2013

Read: August

3 out of 5

This was a Teens’ Top Ten winner in 2014 and the sequel, Unhinged, is a nominee this year. Conclusion: Teens love it and it MUST be great. I felt this book was OK, but nothing outstanding.  It does have an interesting premise, even if not that unique: Alyssa’s, Great Great Great Grandma is Alice from Alice in Wonderland. In order to reverse the family curse placed on the females (all with names starting with ‘A’), Alyssa must go to Wonderland and fixes Alice’s messes. My favorite part of reading this book was the hilarious comparisons to the original story. Some of the characters are Rabid Rabbit, Twid sisters and Humphrey. Can you name the characters?
