Surely you know the story of Alice in Wonderland. But you probably know the Lewis Carroll version -- or worse, the Disney version -- of the story. Both of those are fiction, fact gone wrong. Here's the truth: Alyss Heart, Princess of Wonderland, has to flee her world from her evil Aunt Redd. Until then, her world had been perfect. Then, at age seven, it was torn apart. Lost in Victorian London, in a strange new world, she has to create a new life for herself. No one believes in Wonderland. No one even believes in the spelling of her name! Only Reverend Charles Dodgson, her new neighbor, is interested in her story. He promises to tell the world her truth. Instead, he feeds them a pack of lies, under an alias no less. If it weren't for Alyss's faithful bodyguard's, Hatter Madigan, search for her, she may have been forever immortalized as a girl who ran away from a book with no pictures. However, Alyss ran away from a real problem, one she wasn't able to fix. Once back in Wonderland, she must figure out how to overthrow Redd and restor Wonderland to its former glory. This book spins an elaborate world as realistic as our own, and takes a childhood story to a whole new level. Alyss is an empathetic heroine you will be cheering for from start to finish.
