Young adult books have seen so many retakes on old fairytales these days and they are kind of addictive. The latest is Splintered where Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers. It is this affliction which saw her mother sent to a mental hospital when Alyssa was younger. It appears this cursed affliction goes way back to her ancestor Alice Liddell,the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s adventures in Wonderland.

Alyssa’s mum suddenly gets worse and it is up to Alyssa to go back to Wonderland to complete dark and dangerous tasks to set things right. Considering Alyssa thought Wonderland was only a story, she has much to understand and much to lose. Then of course there is the love interests – Jeb, her best friend and secret crush and Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland. Who will she trust and will she manage to complete the dangerous journey back to Wonderland? Can she heal a broken Wonderland before time runs out?
Looking forward to this one with pleasure.
