Remember when I posted about 2 weeks ago that I had won a copy of After Alice? Well I just received it in the mail! My daughter and I have been trying to finish our current books to see start reading this one. Once we read this, Our review will be up on here and on YouTube! We sort have been a little slow at the moment because she starts school back up in two weeks and we have been shopping for all the necessities a high school-er needs....which can be very exhausting since she can be very indecisive (but don't tell her I said that!).

Summary:

When Alice toppled down the rabbit-hole 150 years ago, she found a Wonderland as rife with inconsistent rules and abrasive egos as the world she left behind. But what of that world? How did 1860s Oxford react to Alice’s disappearance?

In this brilliant work of fiction, Gregory Maguire turns his dazzling imagination to the question of underworlds, undergrounds, underpinnings—and understandings old and new, offering an inventive spin on Carroll’s enduring tale. Ada, a friend of Alice’s mentioned briefly in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, is off to visit her friend, but arrives a moment too late—and tumbles down the rabbit-hole herself.

Ada brings to Wonderland her own imperfect apprehension of cause and effect as she embarks on an odyssey to find Alice and see her safely home from this surreal world below the world. If Eurydice can ever be returned to the arms of Orpheus, or Lazarus can be raised from the tomb, perhaps Alice can be returned to life. Either way, everything that happens next is “After Alice.”
