UNBIRTHDAY (US Only)
by: Liz Braswell
Publisher: Disney Books
About The Book:
What if Wonderland was in peril and Alice was very, very late?
Alice is different than other eighteen-year-old ladies in Kexford, which is perfectly fine with her. She'd rather spend golden afternoons with her trusty camera or in her aunt Vivian's lively salon, ignoring her sister's wishes that she stop all that "nonsense" and become a "respectable" member of society. Alice is happy to meander to Miss. Yao's teashop or to visit the children playing in the Square. She's also interested in learning more about the young lawyer she met there, but just because she's curious, of course, not because he was sweet and charming.
But when Alice develops photographs she has recently taken about town, familiar faces of old suddenly appear in the place of her actual subjects-the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar. There's something eerily off about them, even for Wonderland creatures. And as Alice develops a self-portrait, she finds the most disturbing image of all-a badly-injured dark-haired girl asking for Alice's help. Mary Ann.
Returning to the place of nonsense from her childhood, Alice finds herself on a mission to stop the Queen of Hearts' tyrannical rule and to find her place in both worlds. But will she able to do so . . . before the End of Time?
About the Author:
After the sort of introverted childhood you would expect from a writer, Liz earned a degree in Egyptology at Brown University and then promptly spent the next ten years producing video games. Finally she caved into fate and wrote Snow and Rx under the name Tracy Lynn, followed by The Nine Lives of Chloe King series under her real name, because by then the assassins hunting her were all dead. She also has short stories in Geektastic and Who Done It and a new series of reimagined fairy tales coming out, starting with A Whole New World—a retelling of Aladdin.
- HIT SERIES: The Twisted Tale books have made over $3 million in retail sales and counting! Unbirthday makes up the tenth book, and is author Liz Braswell’s latest installment in the hit series.
- EMPOWERING HEROINES: By throwing the classic Disney heroines into new situations, these books will allow the beloved characters to grow and develop into multidimensional, active female leads, appealing to modern audiences.
- ALICE APPEAL: 2020 marks the 155th anniversary of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, a perennial story that has both literary and Disney appeal. And with such ever-present Alice retellings in the YA space, such as Marissa Meyer's Heartless, Frank Beddor's The Looking Glass Wars series, Gena Showalter's Alice in Zombieland, and L.L. McKinney's The Nightmare Verse series, it's clear this property is perfect for the target demographic.
