it was amazing

Harlot, the girl in this story, goes on a wondrous journey that Alice in Wonderland would envy. She finds herself teamed up with a Frog-Thing as she finds a castle with many doors in a small hallway. She links up with faeries and goes across the water, and to the sea. Her many adventures find her in trouble sometimes with trolls, and she must face danger.
Some creatures are kind, and they are unusual beings that no one has seen before. Sometimes the beautiful little girl in the white dress is selfish and unkind at other times generous.
Micah Genest, the author, takes the children, who will read this story, into an astounding world where his imagination will delight them and sometimes make them sad. But the heroine deals with adversity as only a child can. Like Lewis Carroll, the author seeks to write a story with hidden meanings, “Alice is engaged in a romance quest for her own identity and growth, for some understanding of logic, rules, the games people play, authority, time, and death."
When you approach the book with this idea in mind, it offers interesting and meaningful interpretations of the events and characters in the story. The author is not simply writing a children’s story but seeks to educate and warn his readers that life is never easy and at times difficult. Some parts of the story are sad, but it is all about the way the heroine acts to overcome the tough times.
