Splintered

Posted on Updated on

This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers–precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now. When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

This series is so much better than this description! I just started the 3rd in the series (Ensnared)–LOVE IT!

I’d suggest, if you want the Jabberwacky Poem Magnet, to customize the image. Once your in customization, simply click the button that looks like the larger moon over the mountains, then make use the boxes in the corners of the image to make it just a bit smaller. Click the circle in the center of the arrow buttons and it’ll bring the poem back to the center of the magnet. Then blame the designer for being a noob!

I don’t like sharing items that aren’t (in my opinion) ready to go as is, but in this case, I really like that poem magnet.

    […] Anyway, I was on the paper cutter (I work at a print shop) when I turned for whatever reason I noticed a big shiny beetle crawling across the floor. Yeah, I could have stepped on it, but I have a thing against killing organisms that are bigger than so big (kind of because of the very icky squish they make and kind of because of the Bugg Books (which apparently are a little known series!) and the Splintered series).
