Unhinged -- a Young Adult tale by A.G. Howard
a book review by The Ol’ Book Buzzard, Barney Basin
  n
     Lewis Carroll’s original story, Alice in Wonderland, is the tale of the misadventures of a curious Alice
Alice in Wonderland . Alyssa Gardner was crowned a queen in Wonderland. However, she chose to reject her crown and remain with her friends and family in the human realm. She has been trying to be normal Alyssa with her boyfriend, Jeb, and her mom, who has escaped shock treatment in the mental hospital.  Her life is now filled with proms and a future in London with Jeb.
  But Morpheus--the manipulative, seductive, Wonderlander-- won’t let her leave her legacy behind. During her absence, the evil Red Queen has caused calamity and Wonderland is suffering from Alyssa’s neglect.
  Alyssa is torn between the two worlds. While suffering from indecision as to which course to take, Wonderland invades the real world and Alyssa must find a way to keep a balance or lose everything she loves.
  If you are a fan of Howard’s first book, “Splintered,” then you must read “Unhinged.” Over half of this book takes place in the “real” world, so the dark does not appear as heavy at first--but it is there.
   All three of books in the trilogy are available at the Pahrump Library.
