This isn’t his sister’s Wonderland….
never believed his older sister, Alice’s, fantastic tales about the
world down the rabbit hole. When he’s whisked away to the bizarre land,
his best chance for escape is to ally himself with the person called the
Mad Hatter. Hatter—an odd but strangely attractive fellow—just wants to
avoid execution. If that means delivering “Boy Alice” to the Queen of
Hearts at her Red Castle, Hatter will do what he has to do to stay
alive. It doesn’t matter if Henry and Hatter find each other
intolerable. They’re stuck with each other.
Along their journey,
Henry and Hatter must confront what they’ve always accepted as truth.
As dislike grows into tolerance and something like friendship, the young
men see the chance for a closer relationship. But Wonderland is a
dangerous place, and first they have to get away with their lives.@goodreads

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the cover is beautiful!
you can read from the blurb, it's not Alice returning to Wonderland,
it's her brother Henry. They call him Boy Alice in the book when they
first meet him.
I won't give away how Henry ends up in
Wonderland, but he never believed Alice ever went to such a place. She
is much older now with a family and he still didn't believe her, until
he woke up there himself. He remembers words being said to him about
finding Hatter. Poor old Henry thinks he's had a break with reality.
think this is a really good re-telling of Wonderland. I must say the
Red Queen got on my nerves so bad at one point I wanted to scream for
someone to be off with her head, but I digress!
Henry goes on a
sort of journey with Hatter, they go through some scary stuff, but the
whole world is told so beautifully. The author really does a good job in
explaining all of the things in Wonderland they come across. And the
snark Henry was handing out left, right and center was hilarious! There
is even a little romance thrown in the mix.
We do get to see
Alice in the book for a little bit and that was a great edition to the
story along with a little surprise person thrown in for good measure.
really did enjoy this book, I have read other books about Wonderland,
but some of them left me confused and trying to figure out what is going
on. This book didn't do any of that, it was all told in a most
excellent way and while I still don't ever want to visit Wonderland, it
was nice to visit in this book :)
