Ever AliceEver Alice by HJ Ramsay

 

Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. We share the first sentence and whatever thoughts of impressions it provokes. For the Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice, we share a few lines from either page 56 or 56%.

 

Opening Line:

Alice stared at the spoonful of red syrup. It may as well have had a note saying, “Drink me.”

 

56%:

There was so much Alice still wanted to do.She wanted to finish growing up. Fall in love. Maybe have her own children someday. Write stories and draw pictures. Or simply live.

 

Book Summary: 

Alice’s stories of Wonderland did more than raise a few eyebrows—it landed her in an asylum. Now at 15 years of age, she’s willing to do anything to leave, which includes agreeing to an experimental procedure. When Alice decides at the last minute not to go through with it, she escapes with the White Rabbit to Wonderland and trades one mad house for another: the court of the Queen of Hearts. Only this time, she is under orders to take out the Queen. When love, scandal, and intrigue begin to muddle her mission, Alice finds herself on the wrong side of the chopping block.

  1. I’m always tempted by Alice in Wonderland retellings / reimaginings, but I’m rarely satisfied by them. They often seem to take “wonderland” and use it as an excuse to be weird with no explanation, and I have trouble enjoying those versions. Hopefully this one is a good version!
