Waiting On Wednesday: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine,
and specifically spotlights upcoming
novels we can’t wait to read.

Our WoW for this week is…

For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell—the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers… the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.

When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.

There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.

    I am IN LOVE with this cover. And I really need to read the original Alice in Wonderland before this comes out because it’s definitely on my TBR! Great choice. :)

    I normally read all the WoW posts but I slacked this week, so I’m bummed that I missed yours! I am DYING to read this book and it’s right up on the top of my “unreleased-stalking” shelf on Goodreads! I think it sounds (and looks) fabulous!
