This book gets an A for effort, and a C minus for execution. I only read this because I am a huge fan of Alice In Wonderland, and have most of the book memorized. I liked reading about another take of the Wonderland characters, and I would LOVE to see a movie this book since it felt so visual. The plot seemed badly complicated for no good reason and I spent the whole book wanting to smack the main character, Alyssa. If the author was aiming to maker her tough and independent she completely failed. All the male characters in this book got the plot off the ground while Alyssa stood around and flapped her hands, I would go this movie the day it came out, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone but the most die hard Alice In Wonderland fans.
