ARC Splintered Review

SplinteredSplintered by A.G. Howard
Imprint:Amulet Books
Pub Date:January 01, 2013

I was provided this ARC in exchange for an honest review via Netgalley and Amulet Books.

I freakin' LOVED this book!!!!! A very magical, romantic, thrilling, and well written book. I was on the edge of my seat while reading this book! I loved this way more than the original Alice in Wonderland (I know.. and I'm sorry but I do). Howard has a very dark and interesting take on the 'Real Wonderland.' I LOVED both romantic interests, Jeb and especially Morpheus (the Caterpillar that really looks like Brandon Lee from the Crow). I never could have predicted where this book would go or how it ended. Overall, I haven't been this excited about a book for quite some time.

What really happened to Alice after she left Wonderland? She had children.. cursed children that usually ended with the loss of their sanity. Alyssa's mother is currently in a mental institution and most medical treatment is not helping. She figures out that she can undo the curse on her family if she returns to Wonderland.

With the help of her best friend/secret crush Jeb, Alyssa faces many obstacles on the journey to help remove her curse. During her EPIC journey, we meet some of the beloved characters from Carroll's story. I highly recommend this book!
Words Can't Express My LOVE for this book!!!

This book sounds pretty awesome!!!
There seems to be a lot of Alice in Wonderland retakes right now, but I like the idea of what happens AFTER she gets home, and that she has to go back to save her family!!!
Great review
