Read in June, 2007

This book is wonderful, another of the "young adult that attracts grown ups" genre. It is the story of Princess Alyss of Wonderland, who escapes through a Pool of Tears when her evil Aunt Redd stages a coup at the Palace. Alyss escapes to our world where she is mistakenly taken as an orphan with a predilection towards wild fantasies.

Eventually, she meets Lewis Carroll who becomes her confidant and whom she sees as her savior, until he betrays her by turning her harrowing story into a child's book and again she is denied both recognition and help in finding her world again. Eventually she gets back to Wonderland, I won't tell you how, and begins her fight to regain what was once hers. This is a wonderful book of imagination, as well as some historical information and the best part of it is the first in a trilogy! The second came out in August, Seeing Redd! I can't wait until I get my hands on it!
