A disappointing re-telling of Alice in Wonderland.

Alice is now 15 years old and her tales of Wonderland has landed her in an asylum. Facing a radical treatment being imposed on her, Alice flees with the White Rabbit to Wonderland and finds herself in the middle of a rebellion. Even more concerning, the rebels want Alice to kill the Queen of Hearts.

I normally like retellings of classic tales (for instance, I LOVED Cinder, Scarlett, and Cress by Marissa Meyer), but I just couldn’t get into this book. It started out slow and the pace didn’t improve much throughout the book. I didn’t like any of the characters, including Alice, and felt the character development and worldbuilding was lacking. People that really loved the original book will probably still like this book, but it just wasn’t for me.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
