Alyssa Gardner hears the thoughts of plants and insects. Madness has always run in her family, ever since her great-great-great-grandmother Alice Liddell told Lewis Carroll her strange dreams, inspiring his classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. But perhaps Alyssa's not mad, and perhaps Alice's dreams were more than just dreams. When Alyssa follows in her ancestor's footsteps and goes down the rabbit hole, accompanied by Jeb, the boy next door who secretly holds her heart, she learns the truth about Alice and Wonderland, a place full of strange beings and dark agendas. Morpheus—the winged and seductive netherling who has haunted her dreams since childhood—appears as their guide, and proves to be the most enigmatic of them all. But no one in Wonderland is who they seem to be—not even Alyssa herself. Armed with a power she didn't know she possessed, Alyssa must right the wrongs her ancestor left behind, even as she questions her own inner desires: is she drawn to a human life with Jeb, who has always been her protector and friend? Or a magical future with Morpheus in Wonderland, where dangers and madness lurk around every bend?
